What is your most memorable hockey moment and why?

Winning a World Championship with my teammates in Prague, Czech Republic 2022 because we beat Canada, our biggest rival.

Favorite Hockey Teams: Minnesota Whitecaps, Metropolitan Riveters,  NY Islanders, MN Wild

Favorite Pre-game Meal: Eating Angel Hair pasta with red sauce, no meat. 

My superstition/what brings me luck is: I hold my stick blade-down while on the bench so the goals don’t get stuck in the handle, shake them down if you forget. My college line-mate Ashleigh Miller taught me that.
