Former Friar Genevieve Lacasse ‘12 Shines for Team Canada at 2018 Olympics

Feb. 15, 2018

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Former Providence College women’s hockey goaltender Genevieve Lacasse ’12 turned in a 44-save performance on Feb. 14 to help Canada defeat the United States, 2-1, in group play at the PyeongChang Olympic games.

Lacasse is the third goaltender to see time so far in this Olympics for Team Canada. She was a member of the team during the 2014 games in Sochi, but did not see any time in net. Highlighting last night’s performance was a penalty shot save that Lacasse made during the second period. She denied Jocelyne Lamoureux with the blocker to maintain Canada’s 2-0 lead.

At Providence, Lacasse certainly made her mark. She finished her career as the program’s all-time games played (127), wins (64), shutouts (20), and saves (3,482) leader.

Team Canada awaits its semifinal opponent, but will next take the ice on Monday, Feb. 19. The Friars return to action at Schneider Arena on Sunday, Feb. 18 against Northeastern (2:00 p.m.).
