CALGARY, Alberta – It was announced over the weekend that Laura Stacey, a rising junior on the Dartmouth women’s hockey team, was one of the 22 players named to Canada’s National Women’s Development Team, which will compete in a three-game series against the United States’ Women’s Under-22 National Team.
The series will begin on Thursday, Aug. 21 and will run through Sunday, Aug. 24 at WinSport’s Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.
Thirteen forwards, seven defensemen, and two goaltenders were chosen following Hockey Canada’s selection camp that was held from Aug. 7-17. During the camp, the 41 players invited to take part completed testing both on and off the ice, attended practices, and participated in games.
Stacey, a forward from Kleinburg, Ontario, was one of three players selected to the team who had won a gold medal in Canada’s National Women’s Under-22 Development Team at the 2013 Meco Cup in Füssen, Germany. This past season, Stacey appeared in 27 games for the Big Green, netting four goals to go along with 12 assists. The dozen helpers in her sophomore campaign were good for the team lead for the second consecutive season.
The puck drops on the three-game series against the United States on Aug. 21 (8:30 p.m. ET), with other games scheduled for Aug. 22 (5 p.m. ET) and Aug. 24 (noon ET). All three games will be streamed live on the game summary page at www.hockeycanada.ca.
