Charlottetown, PEI (December 18, 2015)—University of Prince Edward Island Women’s Hockey Coach Bruce Donaldson is pleased to announce that Antigonish, Nova Scotia native Breah MacEachern has committed to the Panthers for 2016–17.MacEachern is attending the Ontario Hockey Academy (OHA) in Cornwall, Ontario and plays defence for the U20 Gold Team.
In 18 games this season, MacEachern has recorded 3 goals and 7 assists. In the past three seasons, MacEachern has played for Team Nova Scotia at the Atlantic Challenge Cup, and also represented Team Nova Scotia at the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George, British Colombia.“I decided to go to UPEI because I love the school campus and the atmosphere there,” said MacEachern. “I’ve been going to the Island for about 10 years now to attend Andrews Hockey School, and ever since I was younger, I’ve always said I wanted to go to UPEI.”Coach Donaldson commented, “Breah is one of the top-rated defence players graduating from the OHA. We have a great relationship with OHA as both Marie Soleil Deschenes and Ye Eun Parks are also alumni.”He adds, “Breah brings a great skill set to our program: she is very mobile, moves the puck quickly, challenges players with her gap, and sees the play on the ice very well. Her experience with Team NS and the OHA will make the transition to the CIS a smooth one, and we are looking forward to having her in our lineup come September.” MacEachern will be a student in the Faculty of Arts.
