The Okanagan Hockey Academy is pleased to congratulate former OHA student athlete Emily Clark on being named to the Canadian National Women’s Team that will compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Clark, 22, attended the Okanagan Hockey Academy from 2012 to 2014, before heading to the University of Wisconsin, where she has one more year of NCAA eligibility.
The Saskatoon, SK product has represented Canada on the international stage multiple times, however this will be her first Winter Olympics. She has won three silver medals at the World Championship (2015, 2016, 2017), while also winning back-to-back gold medals at the World Women’s U18 Championship (2012, 2013).
Clark registered 28 points (15-23-28) in 29 games with the OHA Female Prep team during the 2012-13 season, while following that up with a 31-point (19-12-31) campaign in 2013-14.
Clark is the youngest player named to the Canadian National Team.
My time at OHA taught me what it means to be an elite athlete both on and off the ice. It is a big reason I am the player, I am today."
