POULIN_Marie-Philip

Still early in her career, Marie-Philip Poulin has established herself as a big game performer. At Sochi 2014 she was Canada’s leading scorer with three goals and two assists. Two of those goals came in the thrilling final against the United States when she scored the equalizer with just 55 seconds to play in the third period and added the overtime winner to give Canada its fourth straight Olympic gold medal in women’s ice hockey.

Four years earlier at age 18 she had been the youngest member of the team that won gold at Vancouver 2010. There she scored five goals and two assists, earning her a spot on the Media All-Star Team. Again, two of those goals came in the gold medal game against the United States in which she was the lone goal scorer in a 2-0 victory.

Poulin has been with the national team program since 2007, winning silvers at the IIHF U-18 Women’s World Championships in 2008 and 2009. In 2009 she also made her debut at the IIHF Women’s World Championship and now has three silver medals to go with the gold won in 2012. Poulin was the leading scorer at the 2013 edition of the world championships, with six goals and six assists, and was named tournament MVP, top forward and a media all-star.

Poulin began her collegiate career at Boston University in 2010-11, helping the Terriers reach the championship game of the NCAA Frozen Four while being nominated for the Patty Kazmaier Award as the top female player in NCAA hockey. In 2012-13 she served as team co-captain as the Terriers returned to the Frozen Four championship game.

Poulin previously played for the Montreal Stars of the CWHL. She helped the team win the Clarkson Cup in 2008-09, one season after she was league Rookie of the Year.
