My name is Shiann Darkangelo and I am the Women’s Senior Hockey advisor. I am originally from Brighton, Michigan where I grew up playing for Little Caesars. My senior year of high school I was picked to play in the U18 Women’s World Championship where we took home gold in Sweden. I was then recruited to Syracuse University and following my sophomore year I transferred to Quinnipiac University. I then made the Senior Women’s National team where I competed in two Four Nations Cups and won a World Championship in 2016.
Post college I played in the NWHL for two seasons and won the Isobel Cup my second year, I then moved to China to become a Sports Ambassador for the Chinese Women’s National team and played in the CWHL for the past two seasons. I am Currently in the Toronto area and looking to impact the next generation of athletes in hockey.
Through my playing career as an athlete I feel that I can add great value to young athletes looking to accomplish similar goals. My past experiences have taught me a lot about myself, coaches, and the recruiting process in college and at the National level. I find it only beneficial to share my knowledge of the game with the next generation to help inspire and grow the game of hockey.
As the Women’s Senior Hockey advisor, I am excited to help young athletes reach their full potential in the classroom and on the ice. Educating them on the physical, mental, and emotional side of hockey to excel to be their best. I look forward to mentoring athletes and their parents through the recruiting process, making the process more seamless and finding the best fit for each individual athlete.
