Six of Manitoba’s best female hockey players have been invited to the annual Fall Festival running September 9-15 in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.

Six Manitobans Invited to National Women’s Team Fall Festival

Of the 50 total players included on the list are seven goaltenders, 17 defencemen and 26 forwards, who will be split into two teams – Canada Red and Canada White – for the week of training, practices, classroom sessions and intrasquad games. Two matches will be held between the squads, while two other games will go between local junior hockey teams.

Included within the invitees are 22 players who earned a bronze with the Canadian women in Espoo, FI. at the 2019 IIHF Women’s World Championship. The Fall Festival serves as a training camp of sorts, to better prepare the National Team hopefuls for the upcoming 2020 IIHF Women’s World Championship held in Halifax and Truro, Nova Scotia.

Six Manitobans have been selected as participants including:

Ashton Bell, Defenceman, Deloraine

Kristen Campbell, Goaltender, Brandon

Halli Krzyzaniak, Defenceman, Neepawa

Brigette Lacquette, Defenceman, Mallard

Jocelyne Larocque, Defenceman, Ste. Anne

Kati Tabin, Defenceman, Winnipeg

Despite being named to the camp selection roster, Manitoban Halli Krzyzaniak is one of three participants who is unable to attend. We a focus on her schooling, Krzyzaniak had to decline the invitation, helping bring the number of active participants to 47. Jami Boyd of Minnedosa will also be at camp in Nova Scotia, serving as one of four team therapists.
