An Olympic gold medallist from Sudbury has been cut from Canada's women's hockey team.

Tessa Bonhomme was let go with two other players yesterday, as Canada finalizes the roster for the 2014 Games.

The veteran defenceman had two goals and two assists in the 2010 tournament, where Canada beat team USA for the gold medal.

She was also part of five world championship squads, dating back to 2007. 

Forward Rebecca Johnston of Sudbury remains on the team.

Hockey Canada has to make three more cuts before the 2014 Games in Sochi next February.
