Justyna Żyła is the next top women’s prospect heading abroad for Sweden. She has signed with Almtuna IS. She will be the sixth Polish player to appear in the Swedish league.
The 16-year-old Oswiecim native has been a top women’s prospect for a bit in Poland. She has been playing in Poland’s senior league since 2018. Last year was his career-best year as she recorded 20 points (11G-9A-20PTS) in 17 games. She also is the captain of the Poland U18 team, which will be competing in their first tournament in a couple of years in September. She previously represented the U18 squad at the 2020 U18s.
Almtuna IS plays in Sweden’s NDHL (Division 1), the second level of women’s hockey in Sweden. The club has played in Division 1 their entire existence. For 2023, Olle Öhrqvist will be taking over as head coach after coaching AIK 2 in Division 1 for the past three years.
