May 1, 2013, Charlottetown, PEI (ISN) – UPEI women’s hockey Head Coach Bruce Donaldson is pleased to welcome Trenton, Ontario native Amy Mountenay to the Panther program for the 2013-14 season.
“Amy’s leadership will be a great addition to the program,” said Donaldson. “And while she will be joining our program as a forward, her previous experience as a defenceman provides versatility and really adds to the depth of the overall program.”
Currently attending Trenton High School, Mountenay played this past year for the Kingston Ice Wolves of Ontario’s Provincial Women’s Hockey League. She was the team captain and played as a defenceman earning 12 points—four goals and eight assists in league play.
“We are pleased to welcome Amy to the University of Prince Edward Island,” said UPEI Athletics and Recreation Director Bill Schurman. “Amy is a great addition to our Panther family and we will do everything possible to ensure she enjoys her time with us and has a wonderful student-athlete experience.”
“Having the opportunity to go to school outside of Ontario and be a part of a new hockey team is truly amazing and exciting,” said Mountenay. “Not many individuals have the opportunity to go to school and play hockey, and for that I am thankful—and lucky. I can hardly wait to go to UPEI. I know it will be a great experience for me. As a future student and athlete, I look forward to being a part of something great.”
Mountenay is enrolled in the bachelor of business administration program at UPEI.
