U.S., Canada Announce Women’s U-22, U-18 Series Rosters

The U.S. and Canada are set to face off six times over the next week in Calgary with the United States Under-22 Select Team facing the Canadian Women’s Development Team. U.S. and Canada U-18 squads will also face off in Calgary. The August series has become an annual tradition since its inception in 2007.

Leading the way for most representatives between the two teams is the University of Minnesota. The national champions have six players involved in the series. They’re followed closely by Boston College, who nearly went undefeated last season. They have five players.

The University of Wisconsin is sending four, while Cornell, the Univeristy of North Dakota and Princeton all have three players. The only other teams with more than one player in the U-22 series are Boston Univeristy, Clarkson University, Harvard, Quinnipiac University and Shattuck St. Mary’s high school in Minnesota. Shattuck has another four players on the U.S.’s U-18 team and two on Canada’s U-18 team.

For the U.S. Annie Pankowski has been named team captain. Boston College defenseman Megan Keller will serve as assistant captain. They’re the only two players on the team who were also a part of Team USA’s gold medal championship at the 2016 World Championship, held in Kamloops this year. Rebecca Gilmore, Patricia Marshall and Alex Woken were all a part of Team USA’s U-18 gold medal in 2016.
