Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) women's hockey assistant coach Laura Schuler won a gold medal with Team Canada on Sunday at the 2014 Under-18 World Championships, defeating the United States 5-1 in the final game.

Schuler, who was acting as Team Canada's head coach, earns her second-straight gold at the worldwide event after having been an assistant coach during the 2013 tournament.

"They believed in the process," Schuler said of her players. "I think that was critical for us to be able to pull this off and for them to do the little things. They executed those little things perfectly. That's exactly what they did and I think that's why we were able to pull off the win."

Also on the gold medal-winning team was defenseman Jessica Healey, who has signed a letter of intent to play at UMD starting in the 2014-15 season.
