I got a great return from Women’s Ice Hockey Olympian, Jillian Saulnier in just over two months. I sent this to the Calgary Inferno, where she plays with the team in the CWHL.
I really wish there were a few more games of the CWHL on TV but it just seems like it would be a hard draw to compete vs the NHL & few junior team games that are on TV (oh, and other sports obviously!). It would definitely give much more exposure to the game of hockey for girls and grow it at a grass roots level.
I personally, don’t know much about Jillian when I was writing to her but am impressed at how much she has accomplished in her short but young career. She’s already helped Canada win gold in 2010 at the World Championships and is now representing Canada in the Olympics this year in Peyongchang, Korea. No doubt, her and the rest of Team Canada are slated to be the favorites, along with Team USA as it is in most tournaments.
Good luck in the Olympians, to all the Canadians representing Canada!
