Morgan Casson, MacEwan University, Women's Hockey

Morgan Casson blocked a clearing attempt by a SAIT defender and walked in alone, sniping the overtime-winning goal on Saturday night that delivered MacEwan’s first ACAC women’s hockey championship since 2008. Known as one of the top defensive forwards in the conference, Casson added a scoring touch in the playoffs for the Griffins, notching three goals and three assists in seven playoff games to lead the team in offensive production. Casson’s goal at 6:38 of the extra session on Saturday sealed a 3-2 come-from-behind win for the Griffins, who claimed the best-of-five series 3-1.

Casson is a second year Bachelor of Science student from Edmonton, AB.
