Red Deer’s Aryn Chambers named to Team Alberta U18 team

Aryn Chambers has earned a chance to represent the province at the 2019 National Women’s U18 Championships in Winkler, Man.

The 17-year-old defenceman for the Red Deer Sutter Fund Chiefs Midget AAA team was among 20 players selected to the Team Alberta U18 group that will play at nationals in November.

Of 68 players that attended U18 summer camp, Hockey Alberta established a shortlist and those players participated in a fall camp in Edmonton from Sept. 27-29.

“We saw a lot of talent and determination throughout Summer and Fall Camp, which made the selection of this roster challenging,” said Head Coach Craig Perrett.

“Now that we have the team selected, our staff is looking forward to working with these players as we move towards competition at the 2019 U18 Nationals.”

Among the 20 players selected, eight are returning from winning gold with Alberta at the Canada Winter Games in Red Deer.

The 2019 U18 Nationals features the top-rated female players in the under-18 age category from different provinces across Canada, and the tournament is the first step on the road to Canada’s National Women’s Team.

Team Alberta opens the tournament against Team Saskatchewan on November 5 in Winkler.
