Talk about your experience playing hockey at ASU.
E: My experience playing hockey at ASU has been eye-opening in the most exhilarating way.
Through my years playing for this team, I have witnessed and participated in history while
making lifelong memories. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to play hockey while
earning my degree.
What is your favorite thing about playing hockey at ASU?
E: My favorite thing about playing hockey at ASU was the opportunity to be a part of something
bigger. Over the past four years, I have watched this program thrive under the influence of the
team, coaches, and everyone watching us. We have gone from being excited to be ranked 13th
in the ACHA, to being unsatisfied with being 10th. Our goals have become bigger and bigger by
proxy of our constant efforts, commitment, and hunger to succeed. I hope to see it continue on
this path: onward and upward.
What is your favorite hockey memory from ASU?
E: I would have to say it’s a tie for me. During my freshman year, our goalie Jordan Nash-Boulden
told us that whoever scores the next goal against GCU gets mozzarella sticks. I honestly did not
care about the mozzarella sticks, but the reaction from Jordon when I scored was worth it.
Another great memory is always the Missouri trip.
What legacy do you hope to leave behind for ASU Women's Hockey?
E: I want this team to know the meaning of intersectionality within this team, and define their place
in the hockey community. I think it is crucial for young women to recognize their social
categorizations and challenge areas where they are stratified. I also hope we go to Nationals
Any advice for younger players or players looking to play at ASU?
E: My advice for younger players is to work hard and please have fun. Remember to cherish these
moments with your teammates, earn your losses, and celebrate the little things. To be in this
sport as a woman is something special; take up all the space you can and never settle for being
What is your plan after graduation?
E: My plan after graduation is to attend graduate school for Psychology. I want to earn a Master's
degree and Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy. I hope to never stop learning.
From Emily, "I would like to thank my parents for supporting me throughout my hockey journey. Thank you Mom for wearing all ASU hockey attire, watching all of the live streams, and texting me after games. Dad, thank you for coaching me when I was younger and pushing me when I was older. I still remember every time you bought me chocolate milk after practice when we lived in Maryland. I would like to thank the coaching staff for their time and energy on and off the ice. Big shoutout to our media team, because without you we would not have the support we do.
Thank you to my teammates for being CLAW. Lastly, thank you to all of “my fans” who drive
from the Polytechnic Campus to fill up an entire seating section each game. I love all of you."
