The Hatchet Lake, Nova Scotia native continued her incredible run in 2018-19, stopping 86 of 88 shots in a 1-1-0 week versus Penn State.

The following day, she had a highlight reel primary assist on Olivia Zafuto's goal and added a power play marker of her own to complete the sweep with a win over RPI.
