Charlottetown, PEI (July 14, 2016)— University of Prince Edward Island Women’s Hockey Head Coach Bruce Donaldson is pleased to announce that Montreal, Quebec native Caroline Daoust has committed to the Panthers for the upcoming 2016-17 season.

For the past three seasons, Daoust was a student-athlete for CEGEP Saint Laurent Patriotes. In 21 games last season, the defenceman scored one goal and added five assists for six points. The Patriotes finished second in the provincial championship, and had a regular season record of 20 wins, 2 losses, and a shoot-out loss (the Patriotes won the provincial championship in 2015).

Daoust is excited to begin her CIS career at UPEI and looks forward to playing with longtime friend and AUS All-Star goalie Marie-Soleil Deschenes.

Coach Donaldson comments, “Caroline comes from a great CEGEP program that offers a strong transition to CIS hockey. Caroline plays a strong physical game with great first pass and ability to make quick decisions. She will add size, experience, and a strong understanding of the team concept.”

Daoust has been accepted into the Faculty of Science at UPEI.
