Today’s Blue Warrior is Renata Fast. Renata scored two goals in this game, the Furies’ third and fifth goals. She was also a great two-way player for the Furies today, fighting for the puck, and challenging the Blades constantly.
She’s also up to be voted in to the CWHL All Star Game’s Captain’s Race. The CWHL All Star game takes place on Saturday February 11th at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
