She participated in the Arctic Winter Games in 2014, 2016 and 2018 and won bronze, gold and silver medals for hockey.

“The addition of Abby to our lineup gives our team a boost in size and strength, both offensively and defensively, as her style of play creates time and space for her teammates,” says Head Coach Chris Leeming.

“Furthermore, Abby strengthens our leadership core as she served as an assistant captain on her past team and aims to lead by example through determination and character.”

Webster will be studying Sports Management at the college in the fall.
