PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College senior goaltender Genevieve Lacasse (Kingston, Ontario) will make her Canadian National Team debut later this month at the International Ice Hockey Federation's Eight Nation's Women's Tournament. The competition will take place August 24 to September 3 in Vierumaki, Finland.

For Lacasse, the national team berth is the latest in a series of international accomplishments. Earlier this year, she led the Canadian Under-22 National Team to the gold medal in the MLP Cup, stopping every shot she faced while earning three victories in net.

Lacasse is already one of the most prolific goaltenders in Friar history. During the last collegiate campaign, she became the Providence College record holder in career saves (2,582) and saves in a season (948). She also broke the Hockey East mark for saves in a tournament contest, halting 58 in the semifinal, overtime loss to eventual champion, Boston College.

According to Hockey Canada, the Eight Nation's tournament will serve as an evaluation of national team candidates for the upcoming season, including the 2012 World Championships in Burlington, Vermont. Lacasse is one of three goaltenders on the roster.
