About Laura

Laura Stacey’s love for hockey began when she was just four years old, switching from figure skates to hockey skates to join the lively game that captured her heart. Inspired by Team Canada’s gold medal victory at the 2002 Winter Olympics, Laura dreamed of wearing the maple leaf and achieving her own Olympic success.

At Dartmouth College, Laura shone both on the ice and as a leader, serving as the team captain in her senior year. She carries a proud legacy as the great-granddaughter of Hockey Hall of Famer King Clancy, which has always inspired her to pursue greatness.

Laura’s international career started brightly with Canada’s National Women’s U18 Team in 2010, where she quickly made a mark by helping her team win medals at the IIHF U18 Women’s World Championships. Despite facing challenges like being cut from the team and battling through injuries, Laura’s resilience and dedication never waned. She made a stellar debut at the IIHF Women’s World Championship in 2017, helping Canada clinch a silver medal.

Her Olympic dreams were realized when she competed in the Winter Olympics, earning a silver medal in 2018 and a cherished gold in 2022. Laura’s journey from a young hopeful to an Olympic champion is a testament to her perseverance and passion for hockey.

Recently, Laura embraced a leadership role as an alternate captain for Montreal’s team in the inaugural season of the PWHL, where she continues to inspire and lead by example, both on and off the ice. Laura’s unwavering commitment to the sport and her ability to inspire the next generation of hockey players are what make her a true role model in the world of women’s hockey.
