"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."
