PWHL Draft: Dream year continues for captain Emmy Fecteau

Two-time U SPORTS champion Emmy Fecteau was drafted 31st overall by New York in the PWHL draft on Monday. She was the only U SPORTS athlete and Quebecer selected in the draft.

Fecteau joined the Concordia Stingers women’s hockey team in 2019-20 and made her presence known early on as she was named RSEQ Rookie of the Year. In her five years with the Stingers, Fecteau was an over-a-point-per-game player while also contributing defensively .

The hockey player graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. She also worked with young girls, coaching the M13 AAA Lac St-Louis team and running an all-women hockey camp with Hockey Quebec at the Lac-Etchemin Arena.

After being an assistant captain in 2022-23, Fecteau was named Stingers captain for the 2023-24 season.

In her time at Concordia, Fecteau won two national championships, three RSEQ gold medals, and a FISU Games gold medal with Team Canada, which she captained. She was also an RSEQ All-Star in 2022-23 and 2023-24, and a 2nd team All-Canadian in 2022-23.

On top of her on-ice talent, Fecteau is just as accomplished off the ice. She was named a U SPORTS Top 8 Academic All-Canadian earlier this year for her success in the classroom, on the ice, and in the community, as well as Hockey Canada’s female player of the Year in 2023, and a Concordia Academic All-Canadian in 2021-22 and 2022-23.

Fecteau also won the RSEQ Leadership and Social Engagement Award for the 2023-24 season.

This was the second PWHL draft and the league’s inaugural season was played from January to May 2024.
