The Washington Wild U19 and U14 teams met several of the US Women's National Ice Hockey team in Kamloops, B.C. after their game with Sweden during the Four Nations Cup.
US players included goalie, Alex Rigsby (Univ. of WI), defenseman Michelle Picard (Harvard), and defenseman Megan Keller (Boston College).
The Washington Wild players talked with the players, asked questions, and took photos! Later they watched the US team take on the Canadian US National Team in the Gold Medal game! More on the story soon!
U19 player, Leah Johnson, was also selected for the 'Experience a Dream' event where she meet the entire National Team in the locker-room, geared with them, participated in the team on-ice warm-up before the Sweden game, and stood on the blue-line for the national anthem ceremony. She will be submitting an article and more pictures soon!
