Les Canadiennes Land Goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer

Les Canadiennes de Montréal acquired goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer from the Calgary Inferno, general manager Meg Hewings announced on Tuesday.

The transaction completes the trade that sent forward Haley Irwin to Calgary in 2014.
Maschmeyer appeared in eight Canadian Women’s Hockey League games with the Inferno in 2016-17, posting a 5-3 record with two shutouts, a 1.49 goals-against average and .946 save percentage.

“Emerance Maschmeyer is one of the world’s most promising young goalies and a respected teammate. After a breakout performance for Canada at the 2016 IIHF World Championship, a storied university career with the Harvard Crimson and an impressive performance in her rookie CWHL season with the Calgary Inferno, we’re thrilled to welcome her to Les Canadiennes next season,” said Hewings.

Les Canadiennes have also acquired defencemen Maggie DiMasi and Nachi Fujimoto from the Boston Blades in exchange for sixth and seventh round draft picks (year to be determined).

Montreal has also traded defenceman Brittney Fouracres to the Inferno for future considerations and goaltender Amanda Makela to the Toronto Furies, completing the trade for Jordanna Peroff in 2015, while forward Leslie Oles has been released to play in Europe.
