It is the first World Cup for Carpenter, 19, who has made 31 appearances for Australia.

This will be the third World Cup for the 24-year-old Foord, who was named the best young player at the 2011 World Cup. She has played in 71 matches for Australia, scoring 16 goals. She played in all five games for Australia at the 2015 tournament.

Raso, 24, was on Australia's roster for the 2015 World Cup but did not play.

All three are expected to be available for Portland's 4 p.m. PT Saturday road game against the Washington Spirit before departing for World Cup preparation.

The Women's World Cup is June 7 through July 7 in France.

WHL

Dante Hannoun scored with 1:35 left in the first overtime to end a dramatic seventh game and lift the Prince Albert Raiders to the Western Hockey League championship with a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Giants.

Hannoun scored on a back-door finish off a feed through the crease from Noah Gregor, who scored the other two Raiders goals in the decisive game.

It is the second title for Prince Albert, which won in 1985.

Prince Albert was the top-ranked WHL team all season. The Raiders will represent the league at the Memorial Cup tournament, May 17-26 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Vancouver won consecutive games to force Monday's Game 7 after Prince Albert had won three in a row to take a 3-1 lead.

AHL

Former Portland Winterhawks forward Cody Glass scored a goal to help the Chicago Wolves eliminate the Iowa Wild in the Calder Cup playoffs.

Glass joined Chicago, the Vegas Golden Knights' American Hockey League affiliate, after the Winterhawks were eliminated from the WHL playoffs. He has four goals and three assists in 11 playoff games.

Glass and the Wolves advanced to the Western Conference finals against former Hawk Chase De Leo and the San Diego Gulls.

De Leo, a Winterhawk from 2011-15, scored his fifth goal of the playoffs 46 seconds into Monday's clinching win for the Gulls, who ousted ex-Hawk Caleb Jones and the Bakersfield Condors in six games.

The best-of-seven conference finals series starts Friday at Chicago.
