Forward Krystin Lawrence of the Lancer women’s hockey team has been invited to attend Hockey Canada’s Summer Showcase, August 5 to 13 in Calgary.
She will join 21 U Sports all-stars who will play two games, facing off against the Canadian national women’s development team and the Japanese national women’s program.
Lawrence scored 23 goals in 24 games for the Lancers this past season; her 32 points led Ontario University Athletics in scoring and earned her its player of the year honours.
Stacey Colarossi, who will coach the U Sports team in Calgary, looks forward to the contests.
“The experience and opportunity for both athletes and staff is invaluable to the development of the individuals and (to) the knowledge returned to our respective programs,” she says.
