Dufault to play for UND

  • Print

Forward Meghan Dufault of Winnipeg has committed to the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux women’s hockey program for the 2012-2013 season.

Dufault is a Grade 12 player with the Balmoral Hall Blazers which play in the Junior Women’s Hockey League where she has 24 goals and 11 assists in 15 games. She been named the West division’s player of the week for the past two weeks.

A member of Canada’s national women’s under-18 team which won silver at the 2011 World U18 Championship in Stockholm, Sweden, Dufault helped lead Team Manitoba to a bronze medal last month at the 2011 Canadian Women’s Under-18 Championships in Saguenay, Quebec.

"Dufault is probably one of the most dynamic kids coming out in the 2012-13 class offensively. She sees the ice well, distributes the puck and can put the puck in the net," said UND head coach Brian Idalski in a statement. "She is going to be a top forward for us and going to really give us another shot in the arm as far as scoring depth."

Dufault, who plans to pursue a career in medicine, said in a media release that the academics program at UND played a part in her decision to choose UND.
