Sarah Potomak will wear the Maple Leaf once again.

Potomak was named to Canada’s national women’s team for the upcoming 4 Nations Cup. It will be held Nov. 4 to 8 in Sundsvall, Swe.

The competition will feature Canada — the defending champion — as well as Finland, the United States and the host Swedish side.

Potomak, who turns 18 in December, is in her freshman season with the University of Minnesota hockey program.

The Aldergrove teen has represented Canada numerous times, including winning gold in 2014 and silver in 2015 at the U18 world championships.

“We’re excited about the group chosen to represent Canada, and we’re looking forward to getting on the ice in Sweden for the first time together as a team this season,” said Laura Schuler, the head coach of Canada’s national women’s team. “Our players have been working extremely hard, and this event is a fantastic opportunity for them to unite on the international stage as they aim to defend Canada’s gold medal.”

The tournament will also act as an evaluation opportunity for the Canadian coaching staff as they get set to select a team for the 2016 IIHF women’s world championships in Kamloops in April.
