 “Up until high school I played for the Niagara Jr. Purple Eagles boys team. Playing against boys gave me my aggressive attitude and competitive edge. Since I played two years with checking, I was able to learn key aspects of the game, such as keeping my head up, playing quick, and being strong on the puck. It was an awesome experience and I believe it made me the player I am today.

In high school, I played girls’ hockey. I played for Nichols and also played for the Buffalo Bisons. Playing for both of those teams put me up against the best competition from around the country and that helped me develop as a player. It also gave me the exposure I needed to reach the Division 1 level.” - Maddie Elia | Buffalo Beauts | NWHL
