Lyndsey Fry of Chandler has been selected for the US Ice Hockey National Team Pre-World Championship camp that will take place March 26-29 at Lake Placid, NY, the site of the 1980 Miracle On Ice. When the camp ends, the team will be announced that will represent the USA in the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation Women’s World Championship.
Lyndsey is the first male or female ice hockey player born in Arizona to be selected to a team of this level of talent. Beginning her career in the Polar Ice facilities, she went on to play in an all-girls team out of Colorado with Erin Wente of Scottsdale. In 2008, Ms. Fry was selected to play for the USA at the U-18 International Ice Hockey Federation Women’s World Championship. The team won the gold medal. Lyndsey was a natural selection for the same team the next year.
Lyndsey currently plays for the Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey Team. During this past season, Lyndsey not only played for Harvard but had to juggle her schedule as she was selected to represent the US in the prestigious Four Nations Cup. The USA team took the Cup with wins over Canada, Finland, and Sweden. Lyndsey scored her first international goal which stood as the game winner over Finland.
How did she get her start in hockey? The Mighty Ducks movies. Her family has played an integral role in helping her achieve all her successes, both on and off the ice. Howlin’ Hockey did a story on her brother Wes last summer when he was invited to the National Development Camp.
