Turnbull attended Shattuck-St. Mary's prep school in Minnesota. This was the same school Sidney Crosby attended. As a junior, she appeared in 52 contests while gaining 60 points (on 30 goals and 30 assists).[2]

Hockey Canada[edit]

She participated with Team Atlantic (alongside teammates such as Jillian Saulnier and Alex Normore) at the 2009 Canadian Under 19 nationals. She participated in the shootout for Team Atlantic in the quarterfinals versus Team Ontario Blue in a losing effort.[3] On two separate occasions, she attended training camp for the 2010 and 2011 IIHF World Women's under-18. For the 2011 camp, Turnbull was one of only two Nova Scotians who were invited. In 2016, she made the Canadian National Women's team and competed in the world championships in Kamloops, BC.[4]


The 2011–12 Wisconsin Badgers season marked her first with the club. In a match versus the Lindenwood Lady Lions on September 25, 2011, she scored her first career NCAA goal. She holds various UW records and holds the NCAA record for shorthanded goals in a season. She was the captain of the Wisconsin Badgers in her junior and senior year, and is a NCAA champion.[5] She played for the Badgers for a total of four seasons, identifying herself in her Twitter account as having graduated in 2015.[6]


Turnbull helped the Calgary Inferno capture their first-ever Clarkson Cup championship in 2016. Contested at Ottawa's Canadian Tire Centre, she scored twice in an 8–3 victory over Les Canadiennes de Montreal.[7]
