Laura started playing hockey at age 4. Her parents enrolled her in a learn-to-skate/figure skating class but she didn’t enjoy it because she wanted to be with the kids playing hockey on a different rink. She eventually convinced her parents to let her play. When Laura watched the Canadian women win gold in 2002 in Salt Lake City, she started to dream about one day playing for Team Canada herself. Laura first wore the maple leaf as a member of Canada’s National Women’s U18 Team in August 2010. Over the next few years, Laura was cut four consecutive years before finally making her IIHF Women’s World Championship debut in 2017, helping Canada win the silver medal. Getting cut and battling through injuries made her truly realize how much she wanted to pursue her dream of playing for Team Canada. Laura was fortunate enough to earn her spot on the 2018 Winter Olympic roster and helped Team Canada win the silver medal. Four years later, Laura was once again medalling for Team Canada at the 2022 Winter Olympics, only this time, she and her teammates were wearing GOLD!
