Botterill is one of just four Canadians to have played in all four Olympic women’s hockey tournaments, winning three gold medals (2002, 2006, 2010) and one silver (1998).  She was named to the Media All-Star Team at the 2006 Olympic Winter Games.  In her final international game she set up Marie-Philip Poulin for the gold medal-winning goal at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

In addition to her three Olympic gold medals, Botterill also won five gold medals at the IIHF World Women’s Championship (1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, 2007) and seven at the 3 Nations/4 Nations Cup (1999-01, 2005-07, 2009).  Botterill was named MVP of the 2001 and 2004 World Championships.

Botterill had spent four seasons at Harvard University, recording 319 points in 107 games. She earned at least one point in 106 of those games, including a record 80 games in a row.  In 2000-01 and 2002-03 she won the Patty Kazmaier Award as the top player in U.S. women’s college hockey.  She is the only player to win the award twice.
