Panda Profiles Part 2

A continued look at a team heading back to Nationals

Welcome back to the second installment of profiles for the talented hockey players on the University of Alberta Pandas team. The Pandas recently – by which I mean this weekend – advanced the Canada West Finals in women’s hockey. This ensures that they will join the field for the U Sports National tournament down in PEI in the middle of March.

With the Canada West Finals being played in Edmonton next weekend, it is good time to continue introducing the players. Though, to be honest, I’m not sure there is ever a bad time to learn more about women’s hockey.
