The Buffalo Beauts announced Friday morning that they have signed talented forward Brooke Stacey to their 2019-2020 roster.
Stacey comes to Buffalo after four productive years on the University at Maine women’s hockey team, where she recorded double-digit points in every season. Her senior season was her most productive, when Stacey logged 13 goals and 17 assists for 30 points.
She finished her NCAA career with 87 points, 41 goals and 46 assists. In addition to her college accomplishments, Stacey won gold with the U18 Team Canada at Nationals.
“Brooke is a force to be reckoned with, and she has proven that playing at both the college and national levels,” said Beauts general manager Mandy Cronin in a news release. “Not only does she have a knack for finding the back of the net, but she is also a leader on and off the ice, which is incredibly important to the Buffalo Beauts organization. We are very excited to welcome Brooke to the NWHL.”
After she graduated from Maine, Stacey played one season with Linkoping HC of the Swedish Women’s Hockey League. The 22-year-old scored two total goals with the team, one in the regular season and one in the postseason.
“I wanted to join the NWHL and the Buffalo Beauts because of the great opportunity presented to me,” said Stacey in the press release. “I wanted to be part of a league that has played a vital role in advancing women’s hockey.”
Stacey joins forward Corinne Buie and fellow University at Maine alumna Mariah Fujimagari as the Beauts’ first three signings of the
Fujimagari signed on June 18 after playing with the Worcester Blades of the now-defunct CWHL last season, while Buie signed with
Buffalo last Friday.
