Sarah Fillier is a well-decorated athlete, with an Olympic Gold Medal, three-time World championship Gold Medals, World Championship MVP among many other NCAA and IIHF awards. She previously played for Princeton University and was drafted first overall by New York in the PWHL.

Fillier and Celebrini are exclusive CCM ambassadors who will be using CCM’s newest and most innovative gear in their professional hockey debuts.

“Everyone I’ve met at CCM has been amazing,” Fillier said. “With Sarah Nurse, Emma Maltais and Erin Ambrose being with CCM, it’s going to be incredible to have a place among these great players.”

“I grew up wearing CCM,” said Celebrini. “The skates, sticks, and all the gear that I use is so comfortable, and just fits perfectly. I perform well in CCM gear and I’m excited to get to test and try all their new equipment.”

Said CCM CEO Marrouane Nabih: “We are thrilled to welcome these top prospects to Team CCM and have them join the ranks of the most talented professional players. CCM has the trust of the best players in the world, and we will continue to innovate our equipment to provide extraordinary, young players like Macklin and Sarah the confidence they need to play at their best and inspire a new generation of individuals to join our sport.”
