TORONTO — The Toronto Six have signed three skaters to their roster for the 2021 NWHL season. Forwards Taytum Clairmont, Julie Allen, and defender Megan Quinn will join the Six in Lake Placid for the NWHL Bubble.

All three of these players love playing the game and are on board with our mission and quest to win the Isobel Cup,” President and Head Coach Digit Murphy said. “Taytum is a seasoned player with experience at several levels who will fit perfectly into our offensive scheme. Julie is a veteran who has been around professional hockey for years and adds experience and wisdom to our on ice and locker room culture. Megan impressed us with her fitness levels and instincts at defense and will strengthen our depth on the back end.”
