CALGARY, Alta. — A Nova Scotia netminder added an international victory to her personal win column over the weekend.

Maddie Beck picked up her first-ever win between the pipes for Team Canada on Friday night. Beck, a 5’3” goaltender from Lunenburg, stopped 23 of the 26 shots fired her way as Canada’s under-18 women’s national team edged the United States 4-3 at WinSport’s Markin MacPhail Centre in Calgary.

Julia Gosling’s power play tally with 6:59 remaining in the game proved to be the winner for Team Canada. Beck was perfect in the third period, turning aside all ten shots that the Americans directed at her net.

Canada finished the three-game summer series against their American rivals with a 2-1 record. Beck’s victory was the lone Canadian win in regulation.

Hockey Canada will use the event as an evaluation tool in preparation for selecting the Canadian team that will compete at the 2019 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship in Obihiro, Japan from Jan. 6-13, 2019.

Hockey Nova Scotia would like to congratulate Maddie Beck on earning her first international win in goal for Canada and wish her the best of luck in her hockey future.
