All-time points leader scores spot in Hall of Fame

Women's hockey great Podloski latest CW Hall of Famer

EDMONTON – A decade after her university career concluded, Tarin Podloski’s record-setting totals at the University of Alberta are standing the test of time.

The conference’s all-time leader in both points (213) and assists (122), Podloski is one the finest women’s university players in the history of Canada West.

Podloski was announced Tuesday as the latest Canada West Hall of Famer, joining former teammate Danielle Bourgeois. Both players are dual inductees after being part of the 2001-07 Pandas dynasty, which entered the Hall of Fame in the fall.

In addition to her career totals, Podloski remains the Canada West single-season points record holder with 61 and single-season assists leader with 38.

In terms of team accomplishments, Podloski played a starring role for the Pandas on four Canada West championship teams, and a trio of national championship winning squads.

While she didn’t claim national gold during her 2009 Canada West and CIS Player of the Year season, Podloski did top the nation in 2006, 2007, and 2010.

For the last century, organized university sport has been a central part of the student experience at institutions across Western Canada. Beginning with the University of Manitoba capturing the first Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (WCIAU) men's hockey banner in 1919-20, student-athletes have been competing to reach their full potential in sport and the classroom, while enriching campus life. 

To commemorate 100 years of university sport across Western Canada, the Canada West Hall of Fame was created in the spring of 2019, with the first induction class set to be unveiled throughout the 2019-20 season.
