Marie-Philip Poulin-Nadeau (born March 28, 1991) is a Canadian ice hockey forward, currently with the PWHPA and who serves as captain of the Canadian national team. A two-time Olympic and two-time World champion with the Canadian national team, Poulin famously scored the game-winning goal in the gold medal games in the first two Olympics in which she competed, in 2010 and 2014, for which she was dubbed Captain Clutch by her teammates and the media. Following another game-winning goal at the 2021 IIHF Women’s World Championship, she completed an unprecedented “golden goal hat trick” at major international championships. Since 2015 she has served as the captain of Team Canada, leading them to a silver medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Professionally, Poulin played for and captained Les Canadiennes de Montreal in the now-defunct Canadian Women’s Hockey League, before joining the Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association. While playing with Les Canadiennes she won the Clarkson Cup twice and was named CWHL MVP three times. She is widely considered to be among the best women’s hockey stars of all-time.
