Shai­lynn Snow is likely hav­ing the most mem­o­rable month of her life. The 17-year-old from Clarke’s Beach was re­cently named to the Hockey Canada Na­tional Women’s Un­der-18 Team for a three-game ex­hi­bi­tion se­ries against the United States sched­uled for Aug. 16-19.

Shai­lynn Snow played her way on to the ros­ter for a Cana­dian na­tional women’s ju­nior team sched­uled to face the United States last week.

On Sun­day, Aug. 12, Hockey Canada named the Clarke’s Beach na­tive to its 23-player ros­ter for the Na­tional Women’s Un­der-18 Team. Canada and the U.S. were due to face off for a three-game se­ries in Cal­gary later that week, Aug. 16-19.

Snow was among 92 players tak­ing part in se­lec­tion camps for the un­der-18 squad and the Na­tional Women’s De­vel­op­ment Team. The ros­ter for the lat­ter team was also an­nounced Aug. 12.

In three ex­hi­bi­tion games played dur­ing the se­lec­tion camp, Snow showed off her knack for bury­ing pucks in the net. She tied as the top scorer for goals (two) and points (four).

A 17-year-old for­ward due back at the St. Cather­ine’s, On­tario, prep school Ri­d­ley Col­lege in the fall for her se­nior year, Snow has al­ready com­mit­ted to St. Lawrence Col­lege in Can­ton, New York. She was of­fered a full athletic schol­ar­ship to at­tend the Amer­i­can col­lege, where she’ll be­gin play­ing hockey in 2019.

Fol­low­ing the se­ries against the Amer­i­cans, Hockey Canada will con­tinue as­sess­ing players through the early months of the 2018-19 sea­son. Even­tu­ally, a team will be se­lected to rep­re­sent Canada at the 2019 In­ter­na­tional Ice Hockey Fed­er­a­tion’s U18 Women’s World Cham­pi­onship, hap­pen­ing Jan. 6-13 in Obi­hiro, Ja­pan.
