Hockey Canada announced Monday that three-time Olympic gold medallist Kim St. Pierre has retired from international competition.
The 34-year-old goalie, who also participated in nine women’s world championships, appeared in a record 83 games for Team Canada, collecting 29 career shutouts. The Chateauguay, Que., native’s career goals against average stands at 1.17, with a 0.939 save percentage.
“On behalf of Hockey Canada and fans across the country, we thank Kim for her dedication to Canada’s National Women’s Program, and contributions not only to the team, but to female hockey overall,” Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson said.
“We wish Kim all the best in her future endeavours. Kim will always be remembered as one of the best female goaltenders of all-time.”
After starring for the McGill Martlets women’s team, St-Pierre became the first female goaltender to win a men’s CIS game when she accomplished the feat at McGill in 2003.
