Sarah Potomak will once again represent her country.

Potomak, a 17-year-old from Aldergrove, was on the final 22-player roster released by Hockey Canada.

The women's national U18 team will play a series against the United States from Aug. 21 to 24 in Calgary.

Potomak, a five-foot-five, 140-pound forward attends the Pursuit of Excellence in Kelowna. She led her team in scoring with 29 goals and 60 points in 42 games in 2013/14.

She is entering Grade 12.

Potomak has represented Canada before, helping the team win gold at the IIHF U18 world championship in Budapest, Hungary earlier this year.

In that tournament, she scored goals in four of the five games and finished with five goals and eight points.
