A Sturgeon County netminder is moving up the ranks.
Former Edmonton Midget AAA Pandas goaltender Lexi Bruce has committed to play for the Olds College Broncos of the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) in the fall.
“I am most excited to be a Bronco because it will mean I will get the chance to be a part of the close-knit community at Olds while continuing to play the sport I love," said Bruce.
Bruce posted a .890 save percentage in 12 regular season games last season in the AFHL. In playoffs, the 17-year-old stepped her game up with a .930 save percentage and a 2.03 goals against average.
"With the Pandas I averaged about 35-40 shots a game and I think that's a big key that's has made me improve so much over the past two years and got me up to this level," added Bruce.
Broncos’ head coach Chris Leeming had high praise for his new recruit.
“Lexi is a highly competitive and athletic goaltender who possesses a remarkable attitude and work ethic. Lexi’s character and commitment to constant improvement embodies the definition of what it means to be a Bronco."

The Sturgeon Composite High School grad will be studying sports business management this fall.
