HANOVER, N.H. — Dartmouth women's hockey incoming freshman Laura Stacey is on the roster for Hockey Canada's National Women's Team September Camp and Fall Festival, the organization has announced. Forty players will attend the event, which takes place Sept. 22-30 at the WinSport Canada Athletic & Ice Complex in Calgary, Alberta.
The camp roster includes four goaltenders, 13 defensemen and 23 forwards, who will be split up into Red and White teams for several practices and intrasquad games. The nine-day camp will also include exhibition games against Midget AAA teams from the Alberta Midget Hockey League.
Earlier this year, Stacey was a member of Hockey Canada's National Women's Under-22/Development Team that played a three-game series against the United States in late August.
The forward from Kleinburg, Ont. comes to Dartmouth after playing two seasons for the Toronto Jr. Aeros of the PWHL. Stacey's resume also includes a pair of gold medals with Canada's National Under-18 Team at the 2011 and 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 Women's World Championships.
The September Camp and Fall Festival are used to evaluate players for potential inclusion in the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey Women's World Championship and other events, including centralization for the 2014 Winter Olympics. Hockey Canada will continue to monitor the players throughout their college seasons and in other international events during the year.
