Team Canada win the 2024 IIHF World Championship


  • The Canadian women’s national ice hockey team has defeated their US counterparts with a 6-5 score. 
  • Sunday’s victory in Utica, NY was possible with the help of Danielle Serdachny.
  • Last year, the Canadians lost the gold medal to the US in Brampton.

Under the lead of captain Marie-Philip Poulin and head coach Troy Ryan, Canada’s women’s national ice hockey team took home the gold medal at the hockey world final that took place this Sunday in Utica, NY. 

Danielle Serdachny managed to score the overtime winner goal at 5:16 of overtime on a Canadian power play. 

It was just what the girls needed to edge their US counterparts with a 6-5 final score, revenging last year’s lost medal and title against the same counterparts in Brampton, Ontario after winning the title in 2022 and 2021 previously.

“We Owed It to Ourselves to Win That One”

Commenting on their victory, Canada’s goaltender, Ann-Renee Desbiens, said

Oh man, that feels good to win it on U.S. soil, We owed it to them and owed it to ourselves to win that one.

In total, Canada has scooped up 13 gold medals at the end of 23 tournaments

The 2024 IIHF World Championship was the first ever to be held under the fresh Professional Women’s Hockey League.

“I’m Still a Bit in Shock”

Danielle Serdachny‘s goal was a rebound off an Erin Ambrose shot by the pad of the US team’s goalie, Aerin Frankel.

Sunday’s victorious goal in overtime was 22-year-old Edmonton’s player backhanded second power-play goal in the tournament with only two seconds on the clock in the penalty. 

The player said she was “still a bit in shock“, explaining that her goal was mostly a matter of good luck as she only attempted to “take the goalie’s eyes away there” and the rebound “kind of popped” to her. 

Captain Poulin also scored her first two goals of the tournament on Sunday, tying the game during the second period and giving her team a 5-4 lead in the third period.

Head coach Ryan’s decision to gradually increase the 33-year-old’s minutes during the tournament proved lucrative, as the player proved to be a feisty force. 

Pou will always find a way to be a difference maker“, the head coach explained, further adding to her impact on the preliminaries and semifinal. 

Julia Gosling, Emily Clark and Erin Ambrose also scored for the Canadian team.
