McPherson Named To Canada’s National Women’s Development Roster
Jessie McPherson will join Canada’s National Women’s Development Team this summer alongside 42 other athletes at BFL National Women’s Development Team Summer Camp.
McPherson, who recently finished her rookie season with the University of Vermont is one of 6 goaltenders attending the camp, which will run from July 29 to August 9 at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. The camp will also feature two scrimmages against Canada’s National Women’s Team from August 7-9.
“The COVID-19 pandemic really impacted this group of athletes with limited ice time, and the opportunity to bring everyone together with an elite group of coaches will benefit them as they prepare for the upcoming season,” said Gina Kingsbury,director of hockey operations with Hockey Canada.
“We look forward to welcoming our development athletes back to Calgary for summer camp, and we know this group will be excited to get on the ice together before a highly-anticipated season.”
McPherson was part of Canada’s U18 roster in the past. This year she became the first player in Vermont history to be named Hockey East Rookie of the Year.
McPherson is the youngest goaltender participating.
