MINNEAPOLIS – Gopher women's hockey assistant coach Nadine Muzerall has been named an assistant coach for Canada's National Women's Under-18 Team selection camp, taking place Aug. 7-17, 2014 at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.
Forty-two players have been invited to the camp. The players will be split into Red and White teams, which will participate in several practices and intrasquad games, as well as off-ice dryland training, fitness testing and high performance classroom sessions. From the camp, 22 players will be chosen to face the United States Women's Under-18 Select Team in a three-game series from Aug. 21-24 at the Markin MacPhail Centre.
The 22-player roster will be selected by Melody Davidson, Hockey Canada’s general manager of national women’s team programs, along with U-18 head coach Cassandra Turner and assistant coaches Delaney Collins and Jackie Friesen.
Muzerall enters her fourth season as an assistant coach with the Gophers this season after joining the Minnesota staff in October 2011. Muzerall played for Minnesota from 1997-2001 and has been involved in hockey since graduating from the University. A Mississauga, Ontario native, Muzerall served as an assistant coach at the Canada U-18 selection camp in 2013-14 as well.
In addition to Muzerall's appointment at Canada's U-18 team selection camp, Gopher women's hockey associate head coach Joel Johnson has been named the head coach of the U.S. Women's National Under-18 Team for the 2014-15 season.
