BLUE WARRIOR

Tonight’s Blue Warrior is, without a doubt, Kelly Terry. She scored the game winner for the Furies tonight and was all over the ice, fighting for the puck and creating chances all game. Honourable mention goes to Danielle Gagne, who made her Furies debut tonight. The forward was a solid presence on the ice tonight, creating opportunities for her linemates and keeping the puck in the zone.

SHOUTOUT

Today’s shoutout goes to the Furies’ partner teams: the Etobicoke Dolphins, the Toronto Leaside Wildcats, the Mississauga Chiefs, the North York Storm, the Oakville Hornets, and the Scarborough Sharks. All the girls from the partner teams turned out in force tonight to cheer on the Furies.
