“It feels great to be back playing the game I love,” said Baker. “I’m excited to join such a successful group and add some more depth to this very talented team. I’m grateful that USports has given me this opportunity to compete this season and finish out the season with the girls.”
Western, a perennial powerhouse in the women’s hockey world, was likely just as happy to snap up the five-foot-ten Baker, who was the Baker, who was the 2016-2017 AUS Rookie of the Year with the UPEI Panthers.
In two seasons with UPEI, the Chatham product had 14 goals and 26 points.
Now, Baker is happy to be closer to home in London, and helping the Mustangs. She’s collected 1 point in her first 3 games this year.
