Injuries She sustained a mild concussion at the Four Nations final in 2010 against Canada after she crashed into the boards. (tsn.ca 14 Nov 2010)
Start She began skating at age four and picked up ice hockey a year later. "My brother played. My parents had no thoughts about me playing - my mum actually hoped I'd become a ballerina - but one day when I was about five I got the idea to try on my brother's uniform, and right then I was hooked." (nytimes.com 24 Feb 2010; US College Hockey, 18 Jan 2009)
Reason She grew up playing with her older brother Rob and her younger brother Corey. Prior to playing for Berkshire School, she spent five seasons playing with the Springfield Junior Pics boys team alongside her older brother Rob. "That was a really good experience. It was hard to start checking at first and get respect as the only girl but, by the end, I did gain their respect and they had my back. I got tougher playing with them."
