Laura Stacey first wore the maple leaf as a member of Canada’s National Women’s U18 Team in August 2010. She went on to win silver and gold with the team at the 2011 and 2012 IIHF U18 Women’s World Championships.
Over the next few years, Stacey competed internationally with the National Women’s Development Team, which included gold medals at the 2015 and 2016 Nations Cup. But she was also cut from the National Women’s Team four straight years before making her IIHF Women’s World Championship debut in 2017, helping Canada win the silver medal. Those cuts made her truly realize how much she wanted to pursue her dream of playing for Team Canada.
In 2018 Laura was selected to the Olympic roster and brought home an Olympic Silver medal from PyeongChang. Since then Laura has been a part of the PWHPA (Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association) where she and 250 other professional female hockey players are standing united in attempt to create a viable and sustainable professional women’s hockey league for many years to come!
Laura will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Black Girl Hockey Club.
