Charlottetown, PEI (December 11, 2015)—University of Prince Edward Island Women’s Hockey Coach Bruce Donaldson is pleased to announce that Havelock, New Brunswick native, Faith Steeves has committed to the Panthers for 2016–17.
Steeves is currently attending Peticodiac Regional High School and plays for the Moncton Midget AAA Rockets. In 28 games this season, the forward has recorded 28 goals with 9 assists and 13 PIM.
Highlights for Steeves over the past few years include attending the Esso Cup twice and scoring a hat trick against the Edmonton Thunder in 2014, playing with the New Brunswick provincial team for three years, and participating in the 2015 Canada Games on Team NB.
“After reviewing many different opportunities,” Steeves said, “I felt that UPEI was the best fit for me both academically and athletically. I’m very happy to be joining the Panther family and look forward to helping my teammates carry on the Panther tradition of hard work”.
Coach Donaldson comments, “Our program has one main priority for next year, improve our offense attack by adding skilled offensive forwards and one offensive defenceman. Faith clearly is a goal scorer; she has had success in every year of her Midget career and is a key offensive member of the Moncton program. I see her helping our power play out, and scoring from either side of her stick.”
Steeves is enrolled in the Faculty of Arts and plans to major in Psychology.
