When Shayna Moore volunteered to be her team’s goaltender as a first-year novice player in Thompson, she couldn’t have imagined where the decision would lead her.
“No one wanted to be goalie,” Moore, 18, a Pimicikamak Cree Nation member, recalls. “We were all supposed to take turns but no one wanted to so one day I just volunteered and played every single game. I loved it.”
More than a decade later, that decision has taken her to Winnipeg and Boston and to a couple appearances at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC), including a gold medal.
It was tough at times as a younger player, being the only girl on boys’ teams, and Moore said there were times when she thought about quitting.
