Playing career[edit]

McKeough won the 2008 PWHL championships with the Ottawa Capitals (now called Senators) of the PWHL. In addition, she was named Most Valuable Player of her high school team at St. Mark High School for three consecutive seasons. She helped her high school win two city of Ottawa championships.

Hockey Canada[edit]

McKeough was part of the 2008-09 National Women's Under-18 Team that claimed the silver medal at the 2009 IIHF World Women's U-18 Championships. Two of her teammates on that team also played with her on the Wisconsin Badgers: Saige Pacholok and Breann Frykas. During the summer of 2011, she was one of eight former Ottawa Senators PWHL players (along with Amanda Levielle, Morgan Richardson, Cydney Roesler: U-18 camp; Jamie Lee Rattray, Isabel Menard and Erica Howe: U22 camp) that participated in the Hockey Canada Under 18 and Under 22 training camps at the Canadian International Hockey Academy in Rockland, Ontario.[1] On October 3, 2011, she was named to the Team Canada roster that will participate in the 2011 4 Nations Cup.[2]

NCAA[edit]

McKeough joined the Wisconsin Badgers in the 2009-10 season. On February 12, 2010, she scored her first NCAA goal in a game versus Minnesota State. Against the Robert Morris Colonials, McKeough had two assists (played on November 7). She repeated the feat on January 23 versus St. Cloud. Her plus minus rating of +25 led the Badgers.[3] During the 2010-11 season, McKeough had five games with two points scored. Versus the Ohio State Buckeyes (on October 22), she scored two goals as Wisconsin beat Ohio State by a 6-5 tally in overtime.[4] McKeough would miss four games during the season as she helped Canada win gold at the 2011 MLP Cup. In the championship game of the 2011 Frozen Four, McKeough would notch an assist as the Badgers claimed the Frozen Four title.
