| No TrackBacks
The draft for the Canadian Women's Hockey League took place yesterday, and two former members of the Minnesota team were chosen in the draft. Anne Schleper, a defenseman, was drafted in the third round by the Boston Blades. In the fourth round, forward Jen Schoullis was also drafted by the Blades. Schleper and Schoullis both finished their Gopher careers with the NCAA Championship win last March. The pair will join former Gopher Gigi Marvin, who also plays for Boston.

Schleper and Schoullis are among five players drafted by Boston this season. Also picked by the Blades were Hilary Knight (Wisconsin), Genevieve Lacasse (Providence), and Kelley Steadman (Mercyhurst).

The CWHL consists of five teams, of which four are located in Canada: Alberta (with games played in both Calgary and Edmonton), Toronto, Brampton, Montreal, and Boston.

Last season, the Blades finished second in the league with a 20-7-0 record.
