TORONTO – Mount Royal's men's hockey Director of Hockey Operations, Nathan Higgins, was named as the Equipment Manager for the U SPORTS Women's Hockey All-Star team. The team is set to attend Hockey Canada's Summer Showcase in Calgary, Aug. 2-11.
Higgins was excited about the opportunity to work with some of the best women's hockey players in U SPORTS.
"I'm most looking forward to participating as a member of this team of exceptional student-athletes, coaches, and staff and to showcase our high-calibre U SPORTS women's hockey. I appreciate the character and commitment of our university student-athletes and I wanted to continue to be associated with the U SPORTS brand and to proudly represent Mount Royal University in this unique development opportunity with Hockey Canada."
For the third straight year, the U SPORTS All-Stars will take part in the Summer Showcase, playing four games - two against Hockey Canada's National Women's Development Team, and another pair of contests versus Japan's national women's program.
