Raygan Kirk can now officially call herself a professional hockey player.

The Ste Anne goaltender signed a contract with the Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL) Toronto franchise, just days after the team selected her with the final pick of the league’s entry draft.

“I can’t wait to get started with this great group and experience life in Toronto,” Kirk said in a video posted to the franchise’s social media page.

“I’m excited to play in front of an amazing fan base, and I think we have a few more attendance records to break this season.”

Kirk will be joining a goaltender group which already include’s Brandon’s Kristen Campbell, who won PWHL goaltender of the year last season.

It’s been a long path for Kirk to join the professional ranks. The 2001-born player was set to play out her collegiate career at Robert Morris University before the program was shut down after her second year of play in 2021.

After transferring to Ohio State, Kirk struggled to find the crease until her senior year, posting an impressive 22-2 record and 0.945 save percentage while helping the Buckeyes to a national championship.

Toronto also features Ste Anne-born defender Jocelyne Larocque.
