VANCOUVER — Olympic officials are upset with members of the Canadian women’s ice hockey team for bringing alcoholic drinks onto the ice after their gold medal win over the U.S.

“If that the case, that is not good. It is not what we want to see,” Gilbert Felli, the IOC executive director of Olympic Games, told Associated Press. “I don’t think it’s a good promotion of sport values. If they celebrate in the changing room, that’s one thing, but not in public.

“We will investigate what happened. We will talk to the federation. We will first find the facts and then act accordingly.”

There is at least one member of the Canadan team, Marie-Philip Poulin, who is underage. The 18-year-old who scored both of Canada’s goals in a 2-0 win over the U.S.
