Nice work, Tim Hortons!

The Canadian coffee chain often puts wintry scenes on its merchandise when the holidays come around, and has featured boys playing hockey.

But this year, Tim Hortons is putting the spotlight on the girls.

And we love it.






In 1993, only 15,000 women registered to play on a team in Canada, compared to over 500,000 men.

However, female registration has been on the rise, with over 85,000 players signing up in 2008.

On the the international stage, the Canadian national women's team has dominated since it was founded in the '90s, winning 10 gold medals at the IIHF Ice Hockey Women's World Championship and four Olympic medals -- including one on home soil in 2010.

Way to go, team!
