Forfar to take part in Hockey Canada showcase
TORONTO - Twenty U SPORTS women's hockey all-stars, including Ryerson's Ailish Forfar, are set to attend Hockey Canada's Summer Showcase in Calgary in August.
This is the third straight year the U SPORTS all-stars will take part in the Summer Showcase where they will play four games - two against Hockey Canada's National Women's Development Team, and another pair of contests versus Japan's national women's program.
Forfar, the first Rams player to be a part of this event, is one of just three OUA players on the 2018 roster.
This past season Forfar was named a U SPORTS Second-Team All-Canadian after posting 23 points in 21 regular season games and helping lead Ryerson to its winningest season in program history.
The Summer Showcase will be held at WinSport in Calgary's Canada Olympic Park from August 2-11.
