Wildcats skating south of the border


Four former members of the Swift Current Innovation Credit Union Female U18 AAA Wildcats are currently skating for post-secondary women’s hockey teams south of the border this season.  

Gull Lake’s Taylor Kirwan is currently a pillar on the Colgate University Raiders blueline.

The Raiders are the fifth ranked team in the country and Kirwan leads the team with a plus-12 rating. The Junior defenseman has one goal and three assists in 16 games during her second season at Colgate.

The Raiders have an 11-4-1 record overall and an ECAC leading 6-2 record.

The Raiders will play a home-and-away series against the St. Lawrence University Saints this weekend.

Shaunavon’s Taylor Lind is in the midst of a breakout season with the St. Cloud State Huskies. The 5’7’’ Sophomore forward is third on the team with four goals and tied for the team lead with five assists in 15 games this season.

Lind totalled two goals and six assists in 33 games during her rookie season in 2019-20.

The Huskies (4-12-1) will head to Columbus this weekend to visit the Ohio State Buckeyes (11-5-0) for two games.

Brownlee’s Alex Gray is currently in her third season with the University of Vermont Catamounts.

Gray has one assist in eight games with the Catamounts this season. She had one assist in 24 games last season after being held without a point in her rookie season.

The Catamounts have a 6-2 record to sit third in the Hockey East Power Index.

Gray skated for the Wildcats for two seasons from 2014-2016 before finishing her minor hockey career with Stanstead College in Quebec.

Moose Jaw’s Crystal Wale is a part of the first women’s ice hockey team at Dakota College at Bottineau. The Ladyjacks have been limited to a couple of games against North Dakota State University due to the pandemic.  

Wale played three seasons with the Wildcats from 2017-20.
