EDMONTON - Canadian women's hockey goalie Shannon Szabados has gone from winning gold in Sochi to helping out the Edmonton Oilers. Canadian Olympic women's team goalie Shannon Szabados makes a save on Nail Yakupov as she takes part in the the Edmonton Oilers practice in Edmonton, Alta., on Wednesday March 5, 2014. The Team Canada goalie filled in at practice for the National Hockey League team today while the Oilers waited for Viktor Fasth to arrive after a trade with Anaheim. She got an invite last night after fans on Twitter tried to convince the team to put her on the roster as backup goalie for its game against Ottawa. But if they ever need her again for practice, she says she'll be ready.
