MEET A ROOKIE : SARAH LEFORT MONTREAL’S 2016 FIRST ROUND PICK

Sarah Lefort, Foward, #16

Montreal added skill and depth in the 2016 CWHL Draft, selecting

Team Canada player Sarah Lefort (F) from Boston University in the

first round.

Lefort surpassed former teammate Marie-Philip Poulin for the most

career points (183) and the most goals (91) in Boston University

women’s hockey program history, and was part of a senior class

which led BU to three consecutive Hockey East titles and NCAA

Tournament appearances. Lefort represented Team Canada at the

2015 Four Nations Cup, and at the 2012 IIHF World

Women’s U18 Championship, where she won a gold medal.

A smart playmaker with a deadly accurate shot, Lefort is an exciting

new prospect for Les Canadiennes fans.
