Fiddler skates into Hall of Fame

Regina women's hockey star helped Cougars to 2001 CW title

EDMONTON – Joell Fiddler patrolled the blueline for five seasons with the University of Regina’s women’s hockey team, finishing her career as their all-time defencemen scoring leader.

A standout between 1999 and 2004, Fiddler was inducted Wednesday into the Canada West Hall of Fame.

A CW First Team All-Star in all five of her seasons, Fiddler was twice named an All-Canadian (First Team in 2001 and Second Team in 2004). She set team records for most points by a blueliner in a career with 87, and the single-season record with 28 (2002-03).

Fiddler played a key role on Regina’s historic 2000-01 team that won the Canada West title and went on to capture silver at the CIAU championships. She also helped Regina reach the national tournament in 2002 and 2003.

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.
