WHY ARE YOU #ForTheGame?:
Growing up in Arizona, in what was a new, small hockey community, I dreamed of playing collegiate ice hockey. I looked up to Arizona native, Erin Wente, who went on to play Division I at University of Vermont. My dream was to play Division I Ice Hockey, not knowing if I could ever play professionally. I'm #ForTheGame so girls can now dream of being a professional women's ice hockey player.
