Women's ice hockey tournaments have been staged at the Olympic Games since 1998.[1] Six goaltenders and thirty-eight skaters have played for Canada.

Men's ice hockey had been introduced at the 1920 Summer Olympics, and added to the Winter Olympic Games in 1924.[2] In July 1992, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted to approve women's hockey as an Olympic event to first be held at the 1998 Winter Olympics.[1][3] Until 1998, women's hockey had been dominated by Canada's national team. Canadian teams had won every World Championship; however, by 1997, the American team had improved and was evenly matched with Canada. In thirteen games played between the two teams in 1997, Canada won seven and the United States won six. Canada and the United States dominated the preliminary round of the 1998 tournament, and in their head-to-head match up, the United States won 7–4.[4] The two teams met in the gold medal final, which the United States won 3–1.[5] The Canadian and American teams continued their rivalry, and in a rematch between the two at the 2002 Winter Olympics, Canada won 3–2. In 2006, the Canadian team started the tournament by outscoring opponents 36–1 over three games. American defenceman Angela Ruggiero accused the team of running up the score and warned that the event's Olympic status could be called into question due to a perceived lack of competitive teams.[6][7][8] In the final, Canada beat Sweden to claim their second consecutive gold medal.[9][10] In 2010, the Canadian and American teams outscored opponents in the preliminary round by 41-2 and 31-1 margins, respectively.[11] This brought on more criticism about uneven competition.[12] René Fasel said the IIHF would consider adding a mercy rule to future tournaments.[13] In the gold medal game, Canada defeated the American team 2-0 to win their third consecutive gold.[11]

Canada has won three gold medals and one silver medal in women's hockey.[14][15] One player has been inducted into the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) Hall of Fame and one into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame. The Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame has inducted the 2002 gold medal winning team. Four women have participated in all four tournaments and won four medals (three gold and one silver)—Jennifer Botterill, Jayna Hefford, Becky Kellar and Hayley Wickenheiser. Wickenheiser is the all-time leading scorer in the women's tournament at the Olympics, with 16 goals, 29 assists and 45 points.[16][17]
