For the second year in row, Maggie Connors of St. John’s will dress for Canada’s national women’s development hockey team in an exhibition series with the United States national development team.

Connors, 18, played on the development squad last season, and appeared in three games against the States.

The Canadian and American development players will meet again in three games from Aug. 14-17 at the Lake Placid Olympic Centre.

As a part of the Team Canada Summer Showcase, 88 players attended the national women’s development camp and national women’s under-18 selection camp earlier this month, which involved on- and off-ice training, classroom sessions and fitness testing.

All players will be considered for invites to camps and events with Canada’s national women’s team, including the Fall Festival in September as well as the 2019 4 Nations Cup.

Connors just finished her first season of NCAA hockey with the Princeton Tigers.

She was second on the team in scoring with a team-high 26 goals and 43 points, and 10th in the nation in points per game (1.34) and second in the nation in goals per game (0.81).

Connors was a first-team All-Ivy League all-star and second-team All-ECAC Hockey all-star. In addition, she was named to the ECAC All-Rookie team.
