Jessica Campbell has announced her retirement from international competition with Canada’s National Women’s Team.
“I want to thank Jessica for her dedication to our national women’s team program,” said Melody Davidson, general manager, national women’s team programs. “Her energy and passion for the game were undeniable and we wish her success in her new career in the industry inspiring the next generation.”
Campbell, 25, made her debut with Canada’s National Women’s Program in 2008 and won a gold medal with Canada’s National Women’s Team at the 2014 4 Nations Cup in Kamloops, B.C.
As captain, she scored the game-winning goal in overtime to give Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team its first-ever gold medal at the 2010 IIHF World Women’s U18 Championship, where she was named Most Valuable Player by the IIHF Directorate. She also earned a silver medal at U18 women’s worlds in 2009, and finished her U18 career tied with Marie-Philip Poulin for the all-time program scoring lead with 33 points (14 goals, 19 assists).
The Rocanvillle, Sask., native was a two-time silver medallist at the 4 Nations Cup (2015, 2016) and twice won gold with Canada’s National Women’s Development Team at the Nations Cup (2011, 2013).
