Calgary, Alta (July 31)- The Calgary Inferno continue to add to their roster as the club announces the draft pre-signing of defenceman Halli Krzyzaniak. The NCAA graduate will look to make a splash in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League.
Krzyzaniak, a 23-year-old Neepawa, Manitoba native has logged plenty of ice time. She spent four seasons with the University of North Dakota from 2013 until 2017 where she posted 14 goals and 58 points in 139 games. She has five years of international experience under her belt with three silver medals representing Canada at the World Championships and two gold medals at the U18 tournaments. Krzyzaniak most recently played with Djurgårdens IF of the Swedish Women’s Hockey League where she had one assist in five regular season games and two assists in four playoff games.
“I’m very excited to join the Calgary Inferno for the upcoming season and being a part of the team they are building there,” remarked the blue liner Kryzysaniak. “Calgary is the best place for me to continue to pursue both my athletic and professional aspirations and I look forward to the year ahead.”
Krzyzaniak will join the recent free agent signings of Zoe Hickel, Brianna Decker, and Kacey Bellamy as the Inferno build their roster for the start of the 2018-19 season.
“We are extremely excited to have Halli join our club,” stated the Inferno general manager, Kristen Hagg. “She is clearly a very driven individual both on and office the ice and will be a significant contributor to what we expect will be a very solid back end.”
