A trio of Gee-Gees are on the 2018 U SPORTS Women's Hockey All-Star roster announced on Thursday, set to attend Hockey Canada's Summer Showcase in Calgary, Aug. 2-11.

Forward Mélodie Bouchard will attend for the third straight summer, joined this year by Cassidy Herman at defence, and assistant coach Greg Bowles.

For the third straight year, the U SPORTS All-Stars will take part in the Summer Showcase, playing four games - two against Hockey Canada's National Women's Development Team, and another pair of contests versus Japan's national women's program.

Stacey Colarossi, head coach of the Laurentian Voyageurs, will serve as the team's bench boss for the second consecutive year.

"It's a true honour to be able to be a part of the brand and U SPORTS," said Colarossi, who led the U SPORTS All-Stars to a 2-2 record at the 2017 event, including its first win over Hockey Canada's Development Squad. "What we've done last year and the success we had as a team out at the development camp was great. I really wanted to be a part of building and increasing that visibility of U SPORTS women's hockey moving forward."

The Summer Showcase will be held at WinSport in Calgary's Canada Olympic Park.
