After Gaining Skill, Toughness in Canadian Boys' Leagues, PU Goalie Newell Headed to U18 Women's Hockey Worlds
Bill Alden, Town Topics (12/19/12)

"Since I am usually the only girl, it is always a challenge," said Newell, a Vancouver native who starred for the Kootenay Ice Midget AAA boys' team in 2011-12.
