IN HER OWN WORDS

Life after graduation:I definitely want to play hockey still. I'll just have to see whether NWHL, CWHL or maybe going to Europe. Wherever it is, I want to continue playing hockey.

 

Is there any one aspect of your game you're looking to improve upon most this season: 

"I would say my goal-scoring ability. I think a lot of times I'm seen as a playmaker but I want to be able to be a goal scorer, too."

 

What Do You Love Most About Hockey: "The competitiveness, the opportunity to compete is fun. Being around my teammates. I love playing outdoor hockey, just playing for fun. Recreationally is one of the best things. It's super fun."
