From Lindenwood Hockey
Women’s ACHA Ice Hockey Head Coach Andrew Miller is excited to announce the addition of forward Haylee Iverson for the 2022-2023 season. Iverson, who is from Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada, was recently an impactful player on the Sherwood Park Kings U18 Fury AA squad. In addition to her success on the ice, she has also been successful off the ice having won the Vimy C.O.R.E. Award, MVP for her team, the Sherwood Park Kings Community Pillar Award, along with multiple academic honors.
Iverson has been on the ice for much of her life and has always enjoyed it, but hockey was not where her journey started.
“I have been playing hockey for five years now and before playing hockey, I played ringette for six years,” she explained. “I decided that if I wanted more from the game in my future, ringette would restrict me from that, so that’s when I decided that I would give hockey a try. Five years ago, I fell in love with not only the game, but also the community that came with it. I knew from that first game I played that this is what I wanted.”
Iverson credited the recruitment process as a major reason she committed to Lindenwood.
“I decided to pursue my future with not only hockey, but my education at Lindenwood University because their programs excelled in every category on and off the ice,” she said. “Through the committing process, everyone on the team and the coaches helped make my decision so much easier due to them making me feel welcome and showing so much initiative through the process.”
Coach Miller outlined several great attributes of the incoming freshman.
“Haylee is a skilled forward with size and speed that plays a full 200-foot game,” Miller stated. “She has a good one-timer and is able to get herself in the proper positions to use it. I believe Haylee is ready to step in and play a big role offensively for us this season.”
Iverson has expressed her anticipation for the opportunity.
“I am hoping to gain all different experiences through the upcoming years, with not only the hockey portion, but the schooling and meeting new people,” she said. “I’m hoping to create so many fantastic memories and lifelong friends!”
Iverson is focusing on the Pre-Dental program at Lindenwood with hopes to become a dental hygienist or pursue orthodontics. She will wear No. 18 for the Lions this season.
