Talk about your experience playing hockey at ASU.
A: My experience playing hockey at ASU has been incredibly special. I had the privilege of watching this team grow from a fairly new team to a team that can’t be stopped. I have had such amazing coaches guide me and help me grow as a hockey player and person at ASU.
What is your favorite thing about playing hockey at ASU?
A: My favorite thing about playing hockey at ASU is the family that has been created over the past four years. Nothing can compare to this tight bond we have as a team, and I’ve made friendships that will last a life time.
What is your favorite hockey memory from ASU?
A: My favorite hockey memory from ASU is this past year when we went to Boston and played URI and UMass and swept the weekend. I loved that entire weekend because it was the best hockey I’ve ever seen ASU play and I think we all realized how much potential our team has and how special our bond was. It signified the beginning of an unforgettable season.
What legacy do you hope to leave behind for ASU Women's Hockey?
A: I hope to leave this program as a National Championship contender. I have watched our team grow and develop so much and it has been an honour to be apart of. We have gone from a team that no one knows about to a team that everyone wants to play. I want to leave a legacy of a team that belongs in the National Championship tournament every single year.
Any advice for younger players or players looking to play at ASU?
A: My advice to younger players is to be brave and confident. Time goes by so fast and you don’t want to leave with any regrets. Playing hockey at ASU will be the best decision you will ever make and it’ll be over before you know it, so don’t take it for granted!
What is your plan after graduation?
A: I am hoping to attend medical school after graduation.
From Andi, "I would like to thank my family for always being my biggest support system. And to my dad, because for some reason in Grade 11 I initially didn’t want to attend ASU but he encouraged me to explore the idea and it was the best decision I have ever made. I am proud of where I am today, and I could not have done it without my parents, Lindsey, and all of my teammates and coaches along the way."
