TORONTO -- Canadian hockey star Hayley Wickenheiser helped her country win the gold medal at the Sochi Olympics while playing with a broken foot.

She says she had the injury for about a year and found a way to work around it.

The veteran forward was wearing a walking boot at the Hockey Hall of Fame on Tuesday as a guest speaker at a summit on Canadian hockey.

Her Olympic gold medal in Sochi was the fourth of her career.
