Local Soccer Player Signs At CMU

The Phantom Lake Soccer program as well as Hapnot Collegiate's soccer programs have been very strong across the North for the last several years.

 

We have seen local soccer teams win many tournaments and the Hapnot program has dominated the high school scene with many Zone banners.

 

A number of local athletes have also been given the opportunity to play soccer at a higher level including Flin Flon's Brayden Abbott.

 

Aboott has signed with the Canadien Mennonite University Men's Blazers team.

 

Brayden is a goaltender that has enjoyed plenty of success including backstopping the Phantom Lake Storm to many tournament wins. He also represented team Norman at the 2016 Manitoba Summer games.

 

Abbott was also one of the centre pieces for Hapnot Collegiate in helping them win the Zone in 2019 and helped take them to Provincials.

 

"I am super excited to play with CMU," said Abbott. "I love the vibe of CMU and I think we really have the potential to do something special. I truly am excited to play and to see how my skills can convert to the next level. I can’t wait to start practicing and playing with my new teammates and learning from the coaching staff."

 

Abbott spent last summer in Winnipeg training with the E and E Sports Management team and will begin his season this fall.

Joie Simon Commits To MacEwan University

Congratulations to Flin Flon's Joie Simon on committing to MacEwan University in Edmonton for the fall of 2021.

Simon suited up for 69 games with the Cheifs and picked up 55 points including 34 goals. She also added 12 points in 16 playoff games.

 

Simon is described as the complete player, who is a great skater, very tenacious fore checker, good offensive instincts and very good away from the puck.
