The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Mount Her­bert’s Shan­non Ma­cAulay will be an as­sis­tant cap­tain for Canada’s na­tional women’s de­vel­op­ment team at the 2016 Na­tions Cup in Ger­many. Mélodie Daoust was named cap­tain Sun­day as the team pre­pares for its first game Mon­day at 10 a.m. At­lantic against Swe­den. Cas­san­dra Poudrier and Kelly Terry are the other as­sis­tant cap­tains. “Wear­ing the C and rep­re­sent­ing Canada is a great feel­ing and I feel so lucky to wear it,” said Daoust. “I have so much help from my team­mates, we’re a really great group here and we’re go­ing to have a lot of fun to­gether.” Canada is the de­fend­ing cham­pion at the event and has seven re­turnees, in­clud­ing Ma­cAulay, on this year’s squad. Ma­cAulay, 21, is a five-foot-11, 176-pound for­ward. She is in her fourth year at Clark­son Univer­sity in Pots­dam, N.Y., and is the Golden Knights cap­tain. The Na­tions Cup brings to­gether Canada’s de­vel­op­ment team and na­tional teams from Fin­land, Ger­many, Rus­sia, Swe­den and Switzer­land for a four-day in­ter­na­tional tour­na­ment.
