Three standouts from Clarkson University's National Championship Women's Hockey team have been selected to the final roster for Hockey Canada's National Under-22 team.

Golden Knight juniors Erin Ambrose (Keswick, ONT), Renata Fast (Burlington, ONT) and Shannon MacAulay (Mt. Herbert, PEI) are among the 22 players on Canada's National Women's Development Team, which will compete in a three-game series against the United States' Women's Under-22 National Team from August 21-24 at WinSport's Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary.

A prolific offensive defenseman, Ambrose was a First-team All-American for Clarkson in 2013-14 and a Top 10 Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award finalist. She led Division I in scoring from the blueline with 50 points last year and was second among all players in the nation for assists per game with 35. Ambrose Helped Canada's U22 National Team win Gold Medal at the 2013 Meco Cup in Fussen, Germany.

Fast emerged as a standout on the blueline last winter and was named to the NCAA Frozen Four All-Tournament team. She scored a goal and posted an assist in the 5-1 semifinal win over Mercyhurst (3/21).

As a major force up front in postseason play, MacAulay helped to lead the Knights to the University's first ever NCAA Title. She recorded two goals and two assists in three NCAA Tournament games. MacAulay tallied the game-winning goal, unassisted on a breakaway, in the 5-4 championship game victory over Minnesota (3/23).
