The St. Albert native and two-time Olympic gold medalist is taking part in the two-week camp.

The Canadian womens hockey team is currently taking part in a training camp bubble in Calgary. 

The 14-day camp began on Sunday and is in preparation for the women's world hockey championship in Halifax and Truro Nova Scotia this April.   

St. Albert native and two-time Olympic gold medalist Meaghan Mikkelson is taking part.

“Things look a bit different,” she says. “But we’re all thankful to Hockey Canada for this opportunity to get back on the ice.”

Before the camp, national team players skated and trained over the winter in Toronto, Montreal and Calgary hubs with access to Hockey Canada skills coaches.

“There’s been a lot of days for me personally on the outdoor rink," she laughs. "But I know there’s a lot of athletes out there right now that would do anything to be back.” 

Hockey Canada previously received clearance from the Alberta government to hold the camp, which is closed to the public. 

The women's world hockey championship will take place April 7th-17th
