Huskie scoring great earns spot in Hall of Fame

Breanne George put up big numbers in Saskatchewan green

EDMONTON – Saskatchewan women’s hockey star Breanne George is not only the Huskies’ all-time leader in goals with 81 and points with 144, she’s among the most prolific scorers in Canada West history.

The Huskie great was announced Tuesday as the latest inductee in the Canada West Hall of Fame, as the march towards 100 inductees to honour 100 years of university sport continues.

George was Canada West MVP during the 2009-10 season, when she led the conference with 28 goals and 46 points. The Saskatoon native was also a three-time Canada West All-Star and a First Team All-Canadian in 2010 and 2011. As of 2020, her 81 career goals sits third all-time in the conference record book.

In 2011, George was selected to represent Canada at the FISU Winter University Games in Turkey, where she racked up seven goals and 12 points in seven games to help her nation capture women’s hockey gold.

ABOUT THE CANADA WEST HALL OF FAME

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.
