Cassie Camp­bell spear­headed Canada’s vengeance

The Cana­dian women’s hockey team won sil­ver to the U.S.’s gold in the sport’s Olympic de­but in 1998. Four years later, Rich­mond Hill hero Cassie Camp­bell led the squad to meet their south­ern ri­vals in the fi­nals again. Canada had lost eight straight to the Amer­i­cans, but U of T alumna Jayna Hef­ford slapped home the win­ning goal, as­sert­ing the Canucks’ on-ice dom­i­nance. The team has won gold at ev­ery Olympics since.
