You just signed with GHC, tell me about your feeling about that?
I’m excited and grateful for the opportunity to play for Goteborg Hockey Club. I’m looking
forward to living in Sweden and I can’t wait to meet the team and get the season started!
Why did you choose GHC?
I chose GHC because it allows me to continue playing hockey in a competitive league as well
as experience a new country. I’m excited to be part of a team that has so much opportunity to
grow. The city of Goteborg is really appealing to me.
What are your personal goals for upcoming season 19/20?
My personal goals for the upcoming season are to contribute in every way I can to the success
of the team. I want to continue to develop my game, be adaptable to any situation, and
constantly learn and grow as a player as well as a person.
What do you think about next seasons SDHL?
I think this upcoming season in the SDHL will be very competitive. Every game will be a
battle and each team will have to bring their best consistently. I’m excited to play in a league
with such talented players.
Favorite movie after winning a game?
Anything with Melissa McCarthy.
Stuff you like to do outside the rink?
Outside of the rink I like to be outdoors and active. I love hiking, skiing, roller blading,
camping, and spending time with family and friends.
What is your tip for young girls that are looking up towards SDHL?
My advice for girls that are looking up towards the SDHL is to commit to doing the little
things both on and off the ice. Be the player and person who is willing to do the gritty details
that will make you better like blocking shots or extra conditioning. And always be coachable.
Vi ser fram emot att ha dig hos oss Emma, välkommen till Göteborg.
