Sydney Murray and Sadie McIntosh have committed to the Assiniboine Cougars for the 2019-2020 season

BRANDON, Man. (Jan 22, 2019) — The Assiniboine Cougar women’s hockey team have added Sydney Murray and Sadie McIntosh to the 2019-20 roster.

Murray, a forward from Hamiota, Man., played with the Yellowhead Chiefs and with Hamiota/Birtle before taking a year off.

She was on the Hamiota Collegiate honour roll and was the student council sports representative in 2018-19. She has been involved in coaching hockey as well as volunteering her time at various sporting events.

“I’m excited to continue playing the game that I love and represent my school,” said Murray. “I work hard and bring a positive energy to the ice.”  

“We are excited to have Sydney join our team,” says head coach, Tony Bertone. “She will bring commitment, speed and a scoring touch for next season.”

McIntosh is a goalie from Neepawa, Man. McIntosh is the younger sister of current Cougar defenseman Erica McIntosh. Sadie received the honour of Rookie of the Year for the Yellowhead Chiefs for the 2017-18 season. She is strong academically, having been on the honour roll since grade 7 and is also a member of the HOPE social justice group at her school and volunteers around the community.

“I’m looking forward to a fresh start; playing with new people as well as some of my old teammates and of course my sister again,” says McIntosh. “I feel like my ability to stay calm as a goalie will be an asset to the team as well as my speed and power in the crease.”

“Sadie is one of the top goalies in the MFMHL,” says head coach Tony Bertone. “She stays calm and never quits on tracking the puck.”
