Ace Bisons goalie Corfield on Canada's team in China

  • Print
STACEY CORFIELD has gone from a high school hockey player with the Dakota Lancers to a world-class netminder in just four years.

Corfield, 21, has been chosen one of two goaltenders on the Canadian women's hockey team that will compete in the 2009 Winter Universiade in Harbin, China, Feb. 18-28.

"I'm really excited and don't know what to expect, but I'm just excited to have the opportunity to travel like this and represent Canada," Corfield said in a cellphone interview from the team bus to Regina for a Canada West game against the Cougars.

"This will definitely be one of the best experiences, if not the highlight, of my hockey career so far. Any chance you can get to represent your country is just an awesome feeling. I can't wait to do that."

A national tryout camp in Toronto last summer started the team selection process, then a few players were chosen for exhibition games against Canada's national under-22 team. The final roster includes players from all four Canadian Interuniversity Sport conferences.

Corfield, a nursing student in her fourth University of Manitoba Bisons season, has started in all 14 conference games for the undefeated Bisons so far and leads the conference with 14 wins. She leads Canada West with a 1.00 goals-against average and is first in the conference with a .951 save percentage. She is tied for first in shutouts with five.
