Jadynn Morden, Howie Draper and Hayleigh Craig
After adding to their record with their 13th Canada West Championship last March, the Pandas Hockey program has announced their two newest recruits. Hayleigh Craig and Jadynn Morden, both out of the Lloydminister PWM Steelers, will join the Pandas for the 2020/2021 season.
Craig also played for Team Alberta's U18 team this past season with fellow Pandas hockey recruits Isabelle Lajoie and Payton Laumbach, who captured gold at the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer.
Last summer, the Pandas announced their 2019/20 recruits, who will suit up for the team this upcoming September.
Name: Hayleigh Craig
2018/19 Team: Lloydminster PWM Steelers/Team Alberta U18
Howie Draper: "Hayleigh is a prototypical Panda. She has the speed and quickness necessary to generate the level of pressure that is indicative of our teams style of play. She is an intelligent player that thinks the game at a high level. She displays strong ability on both sides of the puck, which is enhanced by a very strong work ethic. She's going to be a great Panda."
Name: Jadynn Morden
2018/19 Team: Lloydminster PWM Steelers
Howie Draper: "We're very excited about the size and strength that Jadynn will bring to our line-up. She is a hard player to play against physically and combines that toughness with excellent playmaking and scoring abilities. She has the potential to be a strong threat as a power forward for our team and I feel like the sky is the limit for her!"
