Charlottetown, PEI (May 10, 2017)— The UPEI Women's Hockey team announced today it has recruited Tyler Way. Way is a forward from London, Ontario, who played most recently with the Bluewater Jr. Hawks of the Provincial Women's Hockey League (PWHL).
"Tyler will bring added speed to our line," said coach Bruce Donaldson. "She sees the ice well and has a strong ability to read and react to what is going on. Tyler has a strong defensive side to her game, but can also add to the offence when the opportunity arises. We look forward to seeing her in our line-up. She has a great work ethic and is very strong team player.
Way joined the London Devilettes hockey association at the age of eight, where she played for the next eight season, winning multiple Provincial and Lower Lakes titles. She joined the Bluewater Jr. Hawks as a midget, where she played for the past two years. She was also captain of the St. Thomas Aquinas women's varsity hockey team.
"Although UPEI is far from home, the minute I stepped foot on campus, it felt like home to me," said Way. "UPEI is the perfect mix of athletics and academics, making it the ideal place to enjoy my love for hockey and the sciences. I am very excited to start my journey as a Panther!"
