From playing ‘AAA’ boys hockey with the Chatham-Kent Cyclones as a part of their Alliance Championship teams back in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, to two Olympic Gold medals including one MVP performance, and breaking NCAA scoring records, Meghan Agosta has achieved a lot in her hockey career already.

This season, Agosta, who hails from Ruthven, near Kingsville, Ontario, set an all-time single season scoring mark as a rookie in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League, capturing the Angela James Bowl as the league’s top scorer.

Agosta also was named the league’s MVP, playing for the Montreal Stars and collecting 80 points (41 goals, 39 assists) in only 27 games.

The single season scoring record was previously held by teammate Caroline Ouellette who compiled 71 points last season. Following the record breaking points, Agosta had this to say on the CWHL website, “It’s definitely an honour, but for me it’s not about breaking records, it’s about winning.”

Agosta and her Montreal Stars teammates are currently playing in the Clarkson Cup playoffs. Thursday the team opened the tournament with a 7-0 win over Toronto. Agosta had two goals and an assist in the win.

Montreal will face Brampton Friday, and Boston Saturday, with the final to be played Sunday at 1:00pm live on TSN2. Although Agosta and the Stars are not guaranteed a spot in the final, they are heavily favoured to repeat as CWHL champions after finishing first overall in the regular season with a 22-4-1 record.

Chatham’s Mallory Johnston also played in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League this season for the Burlington Barracudas scoring 1 goal and adding 1 assist in 27 games.
