As many of you know, we had an intern at CARHA Hockey over the summer who provided us with a lot of original content for our website and social media platforms. Unfortunately, in August she had to leave us to resume her studies and corresponding hockey career at Syracuse University.
We thought we'd check in with Lindsay to see how she's been doing!
"Coming into my third year at Syracuse University and second year of playing hockey for the University, you could say I was nothing short of excited. This season I got to come in prepared and ready to play hockey, unlike the previous two years. Coming in my freshman year I was sick with a blood clot that essentially side-lined me for the entire season. Then coming in my sophomore year I was totally unprepared as I had been training for rowing because I didn’t think I was ever going to be playing hockey again. So finally, coming in my junior year, I had the right mindset and training to start the season.
Coming in this season prepared has made me feel much better on the ice and in the weight room. I was able to come in confident in my ability because I know my fitness is up and will sustain me during games. I have no doubts in myself as a player and a teammate this year. I am just trying to translate this onto the ice during games. Late October I was awarded an assistant captain role on the team. I look forward to helping lead the team to a championship this season.
The Syracuse Orange started our 2017-2018 season campaign against five teams who are all ranked in the top ten, two of the teams being in the top two. It has been a very tough start for us, however, we have competed and come close in each game, helping to gain respect for our program. We came away with one win during this tough out of conference play but it unfortunately wasn’t enough to get us ranked. We will now start College Hockey America (CHA) conference play, in which we will work towards our first CHA championship."
