Kelsey says that the difference between a friend from school and a friend from hockey are like two different worlds altogether, noting that through hockey she’s been able to make and maintain friends from outside the province, in places like Labrador, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
Kristen has spent her time on the rink as a player who skates with the puck, whereas Kelsey has been a goalie her entire career. However, they’ve recently taken on positions on the other side of the rink as coaches for Under-12 girls teams, as well as a couple of boy’s teams.
“It’s volunteer work, technically, but it doesn’t feel like volunteer work at all. It’s something we love to do, and seeing the smiles on the girls’ faces is really rewarding,” said Kristen.
