CALGARY, Alta. –Senior Emerance Maschmeyer and Sarah Edney '15 were named to the Canada Women's National Team's 22-player roster for the 4 Nations Cup in Sundsvall, Sweden, as announced by Hockey Canada on Tuesday. The tournament will run from Nov. 4-8 at Sundsvall Energi Arena.

The 4 Nations Cup brings together the four top women's hockey countries in the world, with the 2015 tournament marking the event's 20th anniversary. Canada claimed the 2014 4 Nations Cup with a 3-2 win over the United States.

Maschmeyer was named to the roster after competing for the Canadian National Team at the 2015 International Ice Hockey Federation Women's World Championships and for the Canada Women's Development Team in the three-game series against the United States in August. The Bruderheim, Alberta native is 295 saves from breaking the all-time Harvard record, and is currently tied for the all-time best Harvard mark for save percentage (.941).

This will be the second 4 Nations Cup for Maschmeyer, who tallied two wins and 21 saves a year ago in Kamloops, British Columbia.

As a senior, Edney was named the ECAC's Best Defenseman, to the ECAC first team, and she was the ECAC Tournament's Most Outstanding Player. For her career, she was a three-time All-ECAC selection and a four-time All-Ivy honoree. In August, she was the first overall selection in the Canadian Women's Hockey League Draft.
