Charlottetown, PEI (June 6, 2017)—UPEI Women's Hockey coach Bruce Donaldson is pleased to announce Leah Byrne, a forward from Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, has committed to play for the Panthers. Byrne recently won the Nova Scotia Female Midget AAA scoring title, notching 21 points in 18 games for the MacIntyre Chevy Panthers.
"Leah is not the tallest player in the program, but she competes very well and loves to win," said coach Donaldson. "Leah has great vision for the game. She executes very well while moving the puck consistently to create better scoring opportunities."
"I'm very excited to be attending UPEI and play for the women's hockey team," said Byrne. "It has always been a goal of mine to be able to play USports women's hockey and I am grateful to have this opportunity."
