Messages of congratulations have already started pouring in from the hockey community. “Félicitations,” wrote the Team Canada social team. “Yes!!!! Congratulations you two,” Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner added in the comments section.

Stacey and Poulin’s teammates have also shared celebratory messages.

“Best part of my day,” teammate Ann-Renée Desbiens commented. “Power couple,” wrote assistant captain Brianne Jenner.

The couple have played for Canada for over a decade and won multiple accolades together, including a gold medal at the 2022 Beijing Olympics. In that tournament, Poulin became the first hockey player, man or woman, to score in four Olympic gold-medal games (2010, 2014, 2018, 2022).
