CALGARY, ALBERTA - Hockey Canada announced that Providence College netminder Genevieve Lacasse (Scarborough, Ont.) has been chosen as one of the 109 players to attend the women's under-22 strength and conditioning camp. The camp will be held from May 25 to May 30 at the University of Calgary in Calgary, Alberta. Lacasse, a sophomore, is one of 19 goaltenders chosen for the camp.
The 47 players will be put through fitness testing over the course of the five-day camp. Hockey Canada also will use the camp as an opportunity to get to know the players and give them off-ice training techniques, as well as proper nutritional guidance. Using the 2009-10 on-ice evaluation and performance at this camp, Hockey Canada officials will make their selections for an August under-22 camp, which will lead to selections for the National Women's Under-22 Team for the 2010-11 season. Invitations were made based on evaluations done throughout the 2009-10 season by Hockey Canada's regional scouts and the coaching staffs of Canada's National Women's Team, National Women's Under-22 Team and National Women's Under-18 Team. Those who were chosen to attend the off-ice camp were evaluated while they played with their club teams in-season, as well as at various national camps and events.
This marks the second consecutive year that Lacasse was chosen. Last season, Lacasse attended the strength and conditioning camp and was later selected to Canada's National Women's Under-22 Camp in August. Lacasse was one of the last cuts from the final roster.
This season, Lacasse was named a Hockey East Second-Team All-Star after starting every game for the Friars and posting a 15-11-9 record. Lacasse led the team to the Hockey East regular season championship and finished the year with a 2.14 goals against average and a .920 save percentage. She finished her sophomore campaign with 878 saves to set a new PC single-season record and was chosen by her teammates as the team's Most Valuable Player.
