Canadian women's hockey star Hayley Wickenheiser isn't sure if she'll retire after the 2014 Sochi Olympics, when she'll be 35.

The four-time Olympian was a keynote speaker at the world hockey summit in Toronto, and her comments near the end of her 10-minute speech Thursday indicated that Sochi would be her final Games.

But she clarified her remarks afterward when asked about her plans by reporters, saying she hadn't thought that far ahead.

The 32-year-old Saskatchewan native has been a member of the Canadian team for 17 years.

She was captain of the Olympic team that won gold at the Vancouver Games, defeating the United States 2-0 for their third straight Olympic title.

The summit is examining what steps need to be taken to grow the competitive environment and strengthen the women's game.
