On Thursday, Ryerson women’s hockey head coach Lisa Haley was announced as an assistant on the coaching staff that will lead the Canadian national team at the 2013 World Championship and the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

“It’s something lots of women’s hockey players dream about,” said Haley. “Coaches have the same types of dreams and I’m really excited to fulfill this one.”

Haley has been involved with the national program since 2004. Most recently, she worked as a team consultant at the 2012 World Championships in Burlington, Vermont, where Canada won gold.

“Hockey in Canada brings a lot of expectations for the success of the program,” Haley said. “Canada has won the gold medal at the last three Olympics and obviously the goal is to continue on with those winning ways.”
