The Women’s national team won the four-nation tournament in Příbram thanks to victories over Norway, France, and Czechia. With that, Switzerland has won eleven out of twelve preparation games for the Olympic Games in PyeongChang.

Head coach Daniela Diaz was very content with the performance of her team: “The team performed incredibly well and it all worked – on and off the ice. The goal was to win the tournament and we achieved that. We are on the right track for February.” 

The Swiss, for the most part, dominated their games against Norway, France, and Czechia. The nine goals were scored by six different players, only Alina Müller and Dominique Rüegg managed to score twice.

After the Christmas break, the team will compete in the last tournament before the start of the Olympic Games. They will participate in the Nations Cup, which will take place from January 2 to January 6 in Füssen (GER). They will face Germany and Sweden. The five U18 national team players will not be part of that roster as they will be busy preparing for the U18 World Championship in Dmitrov.
