Submitted By Stephen Dempsey on Tuesday, November 24, 2020
November 21, 2020 Aurora, Ontario – The Central York Girls Hockey Association are pleased to announce that their 2020/21 Jr Panther Lauren Schell has committed to play NCAA Division III Women’s Hockey for the Oswego State University Lakers in Oswego, New York for the 2021/22 season.  




Lauren has been an integral part of the Central York Panthers U22AA program for the past two seasons and is a standout on the blueline that is one of the best groups in the highly competitive PWHL. Lauren helped to solidify the defense in 2019/20 when the entire defensive group graduated the year before. Under her leadership the 2020/21 group has already been noticed across North America as one of the best defensive units.

“It’s been a dream of mine to play hockey at the University level and I can’t thank the Panthers organization enough in helping me get there. My experience as a Panther has been unforgettable. The friendships I have made with my teammates and coaches over the past two years are ones that I will have forever. I wouldn’t have wanted to end off my minor hockey years with any other organization. I’m so proud to be a Panther!” commented Lauren Schell.  

Known as a highly intelligent, passionate player who plays with an edge and level of compete that sets her apart from others. Lauren is counted on to play against the top units from the other teams in the PWHL night in and night out.  

She anchors a strong defensive unit and adds to the team offense with her shot and decisions along the offensive blueline. Her leadership traits have helped to create a team first culture in the Panther dressing room over the past two years.    

Mark Digby, Head Coach of the Oswego State University Lakers has been watching Lauren’s progress as a Panther over the past few years and is thrilled that she is joining his program.  

Central York’s U22AA Head Coach Steve Dempsey couldn’t be happier. “Lauren was one of my first signings as the Head Coach and I couldn’t be happier. Lauren has been a great addition to our program and joins in on a long line of great Panthers over the years. She has really blossomed in the past two years and has a ton of confidence right now. The rest of the team feeds off that confidence. She knows that she can play with the best and is ready to put in the work to be an impact player for the Lakers.”    

Lauren is scheduled to start the 2021/22 season at Oswego State University next fall.
