MONTREAL - Emerance Maschmeyer will be able to count on an old friend on the Canadiens to help her set up shop in Montreal.

Acquired by Les Canadiennes de Montreal from the Calgary Inferno on August 15, the 22-year-old goalie will be officially arriving in the city in early September, a few weeks ahead of the start of the Canadian Women's Hockey League season. This will mark the second time that hockey has uprooted her from her home province of Alberta, after Maschmeyer headed south of the border to play college puck at Harvard University from 2012 to 2016 before joining the CWHL last year.

Maschmeyer is looking forward to playing for Les Canadiennes instead of against them for a change, as the Montreal squad had the Inferno's number on two notable occasions in 2016-17: first, the historic showdown between the two clubs at the Bell Centre in December, and then in the Clarkson Cup final in Ottawa back in March.
