"Hockey is a very important part of my life. Whether playing or watching, I am always happier because of it. I have figure skated for most of my life & always feel most at home on the ice. I started playing street hockey in high school after watching countless Bruins games with my father. Being on a team is very important to me & having regular practices & games to look forward to after class is great. AU hockey has been a very positive force in my life & I wish it to continue."
