LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – The four returnees from Canada’s silver medal-winning team at the 2017 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship have been named as part of the leadership group for Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team during the three-game series against the United States in Lake Placid.

The series, which kicks off this evening at 6 p.m. ET at the Herb Brooks Arena in Lake Placid, features 24 players who represent the nation’s top young female talent in the game. The group will be led by captain Brooke McQuigge (Bowmanville, Ont.), and alternate captains Sarah Fillier (Georgetown, Ont.), Audrey-Anne Veillette (Drummondville, Que.), and Courtney Vorster (Richmond, B.C.).

“Our team is made up of a group of very talented, mature young women, all of whom have shown us they are leaders in and of their own right,” said head coach Delaney Collins. “Our captains for the series – Brooke, Sarah, Audrey-Anne, and Courtney – have the leadership skills and the experience of short-term competition from the last world championship which will help this group achieve our shared goals during our three-game series in Lake Placid. As a team, we are looking forward to putting our preparation and work on the ice this evening and representing Canada with pride.”
