The team was selected after 43 players were invited to an eight (8) day selection camp.

Vorster played for Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 at the 2017 IIHF World Women’s U18 Championship as one (1) of only five (5) players that made Team Canada as a 16-year old.

“We want to congratulate all 42 players who took part in the selection camp, and thank our staff for a phenomenal week. As we expected, these young women showed up ready to work hard both on and off the ice, and they made our decision very difficult,” said Delaney Collins, head coach of Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team. “Congratulations to the 24 players who were selected to play in Lake Placid; you’ve earned this opportunity, and we’re excited to work with you and continue to see you develop over this upcoming series.”

Following the series in Lake Placid, Hockey Canada scouts, along with the team’s coaching staff and general manager, will continue to evaluate players with their provincial and club teams during the 2017-18 season, including at the 2017 National Women’s Under-18 Championship in Quebec City, November 1-5, in preparation for selecting the Canadian team that will compete at the 2018 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship in Dmitrov, Russia.
