MONTREAL — The CWHL’s leading scorer is questionable to play in Sunday’s Clarkson Cup.
Les Canadiennes de Montreal forward Marie-Philip Poulin is said to be day-to-day with a lower-body injury.
"We cannot confirm whether she will play in the final at this time," a team spokesperson told The Canadian Press in an email Tuesday.
Les Canadiennes and the Calgary Inferno clash Sunday at Toronto’s Coca-Cola Coliseum for this year’s CWHL championship.
Poulin, who led the league with 23 goals and 27 assists in 26 games this season, was injured in Montreal’s regular-season finale Feb. 24.
She did not play in the three-game semifinal series against the Markham Thunder earlier this month.
Poulin scored twice for Les Canadiennes in the 2017 Clarkson Cup en route to a 3-1 win over the Inferno for the title.
The 27-year-old from Beauceville, Que., has been captain of the Canadian women’s team since 2015.
She is on Canada’s roster for the women’s world championship April 4-14 in Espoo, Finland.
