Taylor recently converted to a defenseman this year. She used to play center and that experience helped her adjust to her role and position.

“At first I was not convinced, but now I would never go back,” she said. “I feel that I am a smart hockey player but I need improvement of my shot from the point.”

Her biggest hockey influence is Manon Rheaume. Even though she was a goalie, Manon still stands out in time, showing that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and to always follow your dreams.

“I am most looking forward to the games in the tournament,” said Taylor. “It will be more fun because I will likely be playing against some of my current teammates. There will be some real competition!”
