The women's tournament in ice hockey at the 2018 Winter Olympics was held in Gangneung, South Korea between 10 and 22 February 2018.[1] Eight countries qualified for the tournament; five of them did so automatically by virtue of their ranking by the International Ice Hockey Federation, one, South Korea, automatically qualified as hosts, while the two others took part in a qualification tournament.[2] Under a special agreement with the IOC and the IIHF, twelve North Korean players joined the host team to form a united team.[3] They were allowed to have an expanded roster of 35 where 22 players dress for each game. Three North Korean players were selected for each game by coach Sarah Murray.[4]

The United States winning the gold medal game against Canada marks the first time in 20 years that the United States took home a gold medal in women's hockey. They previously won in 1998 in Nagano, Japan, which was also against Canada.[5] Canada's loss ended their winning streak of four consecutive winter games, having won since 2002.[6]

QualificationEdit

Canada and the United States assured themselves of top four ranking after the 2016 Women's Ice Hockey World Championships by the end of the 2015 Championships and qualified for the A group.

Finland, Russia, and Sweden qualified by their ranking after the 2016 Championships.

South Korea qualified as the host team. The remaining two teams qualified from qualification tournaments.
