Alexa Aramburu ’17 was one of just 105 players to be selected in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL) Draft in August. Aramburu was picked 30th overall in the fifth of 23 rounds by the Toronto Furies.
The Glen Rock, N.J., native joins the Furies after a stellar four-year career with the Lakers. In her senior season, Aramburu appeared in every game for Oswego, finishing second on the squad in goals (13), assists (18) and points (31). Three of her scores were of the game-winning variety and five came on power plays while racking up a plus-8 rating.
Overall, the forward donned the green and gold in 105 games during her collegiate career, showing a balanced attack with 29 goals and 32 assists.
Aramburu becomes part of the CWHL’s seven-team association, which includes the Furies, Boston Blades, Calgary Inferno, Kunlun Red Star, Les Canadiennes de Montreal, Markham Thunder and Vanke Rays. Founded in 2007, the CWHL states it “was created with two goals in mind—to create a place for the highest-level women’s hockey players to continue to compete and hone their skills, and to create a future for the sport of women’s hockey.”
