Senior Spotlight: Maddie Lyons

Coaches:

Thoughtful, selfless, cheerful, focused and committed. Maddie is all of these. She has been a great Captain and a wonderful role model for her teammates. She does a nice job of getting everyone focused before games. She knows what elements of the game need to be emphasized and she conveys her thoughts well.

We had high expectations of Maddie this season and she has exceeded them.  She has stepped up her game and made a difference. She takes pride in shutting down opponents and she contributes in the offensive end as well. Good hands, quick shot release and the ability to find her open teammate make her an offensive threat every shift.

I think we’ll see great things from Maddie and her senior teammates during our stretch run.

Strong skater who uses her speed and size to control the puck along the boards.

Has shifty moves with good stick handling skills.

Wrist shot has improved tremendously, she consistently gets off low and hard shots that create scoring and rebound opportunities.

Smart, versatile player who can play center or wing and is effective at both ends of the ice.

Great attitude, has always put the team first over her three years, has lead by example.

Strong leadership skills, she says “the right things at the right time”.

Member of the “back of the bus” gang, though she does sneak in homework on some bus rides.

Maddie is a natural leader. She always has the interest of the whole team in mind and thinks of everyone’s perspective. On the ice, she has improved immensely over the past four years and I have enjoyed watching her grow into the leader and hockey player that she is today.
