The Saskatchewan Huskies women's ice hockey team represents the University of Saskatchewan in Canadian Interuniversity Sport women's ice hockey.[1] They compete in the Canada West Universities Athletic Association Conference in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport athletic association. Home games are contested at the Rutherford Arena.


Women have been playing hockey at the University as early as 1912. During the 2009-10 season, Breanne George scored a conference-high 28 goals and 18 assists for a league-leading 46 points in 24 games. Fifth-year Huskies forward Julie Paetsch was named the 2011-12 Canada West women’s hockey Player of the Year. The Huskies alternate captain, Paetsch finished the season as the Canada West leader in scoring with 34 points. Her 14 goals and 20 assists were accumulated in 24 games as the Huskies enjoyed a won-loss record of 16-6-2. Her seven power play goals ranked third overall in the CIS, while her 113 shots led all CIS skaters. In ten contests, she had multiple point games, while logging three or more points on four separate occasions. It marked the second time in Saskatchewan history that a skater has been named Canada West MVP. Breanne George claimed the award in 2009-10. [2]

Kelsey Tulloch was the 2012 Canada West nominee for the Marion Hilliard Award. She accumulated eight points as the Huskies qualified for their fifth consecutive playoff appearance. Tulloch was named a four-time All-Academic, while representing her team on the Huskie Athletics Council.
