April 19, 2013, Charlottetown, PEI (ISN) – UPEI women’s hockey Head Coach Bruce Donaldson is pleased to welcome Glenboro, Manitoba native Teagan Pringle to the Panther program for the 2013–14 season.

“I look forward to Teagan joining the program this fall,” said Donaldson. “She comes from a very well-run organization that fits nicely with our team’s objective of working hard and continuing to develop each and every year. Teagan will bring some offence to our line-up along with size and speed.”

Pringle, an honour-roll student, is a hard-working and consistent performer for the Westman Wildcats out of Hartney, Manitoba. Currently in her third season with the team, she has scored 34 goals and 56 assists. She has proven she is the ultimate team player as many of her teammates look up to her both on and off the ice.

“We are pleased that Teagan is coming to eastern Canada to become a Panther,” said Bill Schurman, Director of UPEI Athletics and Recreation. “We will do everything possible to help Teagan excel both academically and athletically.”

“I can’t wait to be a UPEI Panther,” said Pringle.

Pringle is enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts program at UPEI and plans to major in Psychology.
