OTTAWA - Caroline Ouellette was only 11 years old the last time the Women’s World Championship was held in Ottawa, but it certainly left a lasting impression.

“I clearly remember I was very young and for me it was the first time I saw women play hockey,” Ouellette said of the inaugural tournament in 1990. “I was playing with the boys and I felt like I was alone on my island. I always remember that day and it was the beginning of a dream for me. I’ll always remember the moment (Team Canada) won, it was really special for me.

“At that moment I knew that one day my dream was to make the national team and to play in a world championship.”
