TEAM ATLANTIC HITS THE ICE AT WOMEN'S U18 NATIONALS TODAY
Nov. 1, 2017

QUEBEC CITY — Team Atlantic is preparing to represent the region against Canada’s best in Quebec City this week.

Atlantic Canada’s Female Under-18 team hits the ice today at the 2017 National Women’s Under-18 Championship in Quebec City, at the ExpoCité’s Pavillon de la jeunesse. The event runs from Nov. 1-5.

Team Atlantic’s first test is Wednesday afternoon at 5:30 p.m. AST when the team faces Team Ontario Red. The game can be streamed online on the Hockey Canada website.

Team Atlantic’s roster includes nine Nova Scotians. Goaltender Maddie Beck (Lunenburg, N.S.) was one of two netminders named to the team.

Nova Scotia will be represented on the blue line by Mae Batherson (New Minas, N.S.), Kyla Bent (Halifax, N.S.), Josie Chisholm (St. Andrews, N.S.) and Ella MacLean (Antigonish, N.S.).

Maggy Burbidge (Falmouth, N.S.), Tiffany Hill (Falmouth, N.S.), Lea MacLeod (Dartmouth, N.S.) and Aimee O’Neill (Glace Bay, N.S.) have earned spots as forwards on the roster.

As in past years, the gold-medal game will be broadcast by TSN and RDS, Hockey Canada’s broadcast partners, and is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT on Sunday, Nov. 5.

The national championship, which began in 2001, features eight teams from across the country: Alberta, Atlantic, British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario Blue, Ontario Red, Quebec, and Saskatchewan.

The 2017 National Women’s Under-18 Championship will bring together teams made up of the best female hockey players born in 2000 or later. The tournament serves as an important platform for Hockey Canada scouts who evaluate candidates for the Canadian contingent that will compete at the IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship, as well as at other international events.

A number of Canadian women’s hockey stars have competed at the National Women’s Under-18 Championship, including two-time Olympic gold-medallist Marie-Philip Poulin (Beauceville, Que.), who is the tournament’s all-time leading scorer with 30 points in 15 games.
