Piece of Advice

What advice do you have for young girls that want to become professional hockey players some day?

My advice to young girls that want to become professional hockey players is to never let anyone tell you, “you can’t,” do something. If you want to play professional hockey some day or achieve any of your wildest dreams, then work hard, be strong, and never give up despite what anyone says. You are enough. Do not let anyone make you think differently.
