Cassie Campbell is looking at her skates and the hook on the wall. The captain of the Canadian Olympic women's hockey team says she is leaning towards retirement.

The 32-year-old forward from Brampton has been captain of the national women's hockey team since 2001 and most recently in a gold-medal effort at the Olympic Games in Turin, Italy.

"If anything, I'll be definitely taking a year off and dabbling in a few different things," Campbell said yesterday prior to a gala honouring the Olympic team.

"Right now, I think I'm not going to play, but it's still not 100 per cent. I'm just sort of playing out that four or five per cent that wants to play."

Campbell has represented Canada in seven world championships and three Olympic Games, winning six world titles and two Olympic gold medals.

The 5-foot-7, 150-pound forward has 32 goals and 63 assists in 156 career games for the national team.
