CALGARY - Veteran forwards Caroline Ouellette and Hayley Wickeheiser are among 24 players summoned to a national women's hockey team camp next week in Blainville, Que.

Wickenheiser, a six-time Olympian, is Canada's all-time leading scorer. Ouellette, a four-time Olympian, was captain of the team that beat the U.S. in overtime for Olympic gold in 2014.

The Jan. 26-30 camp is part of Canada's preparation for the 2015 world women's hockey championship March 28 to April 4 in Malmo, Sweden. The U.S. are the defending champions having won the 2013 world title in Ottawa.

Two goaltenders, 13 forwards and nine defencemen will skate daily at the Centre d'Excellence Sports Rousseau and play local midget triple-A male teams Jan. 27 and Jan. 29.

Canada's camp roster includes 10 players from the 2014 Olympic team and 15 from the team that won the Four Nations Cup in Kamloops, B.C., in November.
