Canada's Wickenheiser: 2014 Olympics might be last

BY foxsports • August 26, 2010

Canadian women's hockey star Hayley Wickenheiser isn't sure if she'll retire after the 2014 Sochi Olympics, when she'll be 35.

The four-time Olympian was a keynote speaker at the world hockey summit in Toronto, and her comments near the end of her 10-minute speech Thursday indicated that Sochi would be her final games.

But she clarified her remarks afterward when asked about her plans by reporters, saying she hadn't thought that far ahead.

The 32-year-old forward has been a member of the Canadian team for 17 years. She was captain of the Olympic team that won gold at the Vancouver Games. The Canadian women defeated the United States 2-0 for their third straight Olympic title.
