Troy Ryan to lead Canadian women hockey through 2026 Olympics

Hockey Canada announced Thursday that his contract has been extended for four years.

Ryan guided the country to gold at the Beijing Olympics in 2022 and the World Championship in Calgary in 2021.

We want to play for him. We want to give a little more for himsaid team captain Marie-Philip Poulin. When a coach has the pulse of the team, I think it’s quite special.

We are lucky to be able to count on him for the long term.

A native of Spryfield, Nova Scotia, the 50-year-old was an assistant coach for Team Canada when they lost in a shootout against the United States in the final of the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, Korea from South.

He was promoted to head coach midway through the 2019-20 season taking over from Perry Pearn.

It’s a huge honor for me to have the chance to work with this wonderful group of high performance athletes and staff to build on our winning streak from the past year. It’s an exciting time for our program, and we have a special opportunity to do even better on and off the ice.he said.

Troy Ryan will naturally be behind the bench for the Canadian team at the World Championships taking place this week in Herning, Denmark.
