Kim St-Pierre is a goaltender on our 2010 Canadian Olympic hockey team. She is 5’9″ tall and weighs 156 lbs. The team she plays for is the Montreal Stars (CWHL).
I play hockey like her but she is a goaltender and I play offense so it’s completely the opposite. I need to score against the goaler and she needs to save the pucks. My feelings when I’m on the ice or when I enter the arena are the smell of a victory. When I’m on the ice my feelings are how the air blows in my face because I work hard. The surface of the ice makes me glide and I like that .
Now for the information!
