2018 Top Prospects: Annie Bélanger


A four-year contributor at the collegiate level, 2018 CWHL Draft prospect Annie Bélanger provides consistency for any team between the pipes.

Appearing in 87 games from 2014 to 2018 with the University of Connecticut Huskies, Bélanger proved to be a valuable asset to the program. Stepping into the starting role in her junior and senior seasons, the Sherbooke, Quebec native finished her collegiate career with a .928 save percentage and 2.25 goals-against average. The pair of impressive stat lines ranks her first and second in Huskies program history, respectively.

After receiving Hockey East Top Scholar-Athlete honours in her junior year, Bélanger took another leap forward winning the Hockey East Goaltender of the Year award, while also being named a First Team All-Star in her fourth and final season in Mansfield, Connecticut.

Bélanger will become the second UCONN  goaltender to appear in the CWHL Draft in as many years following the Vanke Rays selection of former Huskies teammate and All-American Elaine Chuli in last summers draft.
