2010 Olympian Tessa Bonhomme Announces Retirement from Canadian National Team

Former Olympic defenseman Tessa Bonhomme announced her retirement from the Canadian Women’s National Team on Wednesday, according to Hockey Canada.

Bonhomme is a two-time world champion and helped Team Canada to an Olympic gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Her 51 points in 107 games are the fifth-highest total in Canadian defensemen scoring history.

Said Melody Davidson, Hockey Canada’s general manager for national women’s team programs, on Bonhomme: “I cannot say enough about her gift of balancing fun with intensity, and how she always put the needs of the team first. I thank her for everything she has done for the women’s game to date, and I am sure well into the future.”
