As our best winter athletes prepare to compete in 2018, Canada Post issued this stamp to celebrate the achievement of Canadian superstars who topped the podium.
Danielle Goyette scored more than 100 career goals and dominated women’s hockey into her 40s. She won two Olympic gold medals and a silver, as well as eight gold medals at the International Ice Hockey Federation Women’s World Championships. She was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2017.
In depicting this Canadian woman powerhouse in winter sports, Subplot's design team set out to create a look that, according to creative director Roy White, "would celebrate the joy, endurance and dedication that has gone into her illustrious achievements over her career." This stamp features a duotone portrait of the athlete in a moment of celebration, as well as a full-colour, freeze-frame action shot representing a defining moment in her career.
