09/10 Women's Previews: #9 Mallory Deluce


Vitals:

Position: Forward
Year in School: Junior
Shoots Left
Height: 5-7
Hometown: London, Ontario
Major: Not sure
Previous Team: Mississauga Aeros in 06/07

08/09 Stats: 41 games, 12-20-32, +18, 49 PIM
07/08 Stats: 39 games, 12-19-31, +24, 8 PIM

09/10 Role: 1st or 2nd line, PP

08/09 Recap: Mallory was another cog on the very solid 2nd line w/ Meghan Duggan and Carolyne Prevost last season. She was also part of a strong PP that was dominant at times. She contributed to Canada’s U22 team’s silver medal at 2009 MLP Cup.

09/10 Thoughts: W/ losses to graduation and the Olympics, Mallory should have a chance to step up big time this season. She will be a key part to the offense and should see her numbers increase. Players like Mallory, Jasmine Giles and Kyla Sanders having great seasons will go a long way to bridging the gap of Olympic losses. A great season by Mallory should in turn spell good things come the post season as the Badgers strive for #4 in a “down” year.

Prediction: 32 games, 14-26-40*
