LACASSE_GenevieveA relative newcomer to the Canadian Women’s National Team, Geneviève Lacasse is one of three goaltenders that were centralized with the team in advance of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. In Sochi Lacasse took on the role of back-up, dressing for the preliminary round game against Finland but she did not see any game action.

Lacasse has been a part of the national team program since 2009 when she attended the under-22 selection camp. She was the third goaltender for the Canadian team at both the 2012 and 2013 IIHF Women’s World Championships, winning gold and silver.

Lacasse graduated from Providence College in 2012 after a four-year collegiate career that saw her rewrite the school’s goaltending record book. She had the most wins (64), most games played (127), most saves (3482) and most shutouts (20) for the Providence Friars. She was also the team captain during her senior year.

Lacasse joined the Boston Blades of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League for the 2012-13 season. In her rookie year the team won the regular season title as well as the Clarkson Cup. Lacasse was a major contributor to the success. She led the league in six goaltending statistical categories and was named the CWHL’s Goaltender of the Year.
