We would like to welcome Sam Hanson to the FHIT Hockey team!
Sam has taken on the role of the MAP/Monarch's Girls Director and Administrator. We are very excited to have someone of Sam's expertise and background to join FHIT Hockey and we are confident that it will benefit our members both on and off the ice.
Meet Sam Hanson:
Sam Hanson is from Hugo, Minnesota and grew up playing her youth and high school hockey in White Bear Lake. She herself participated in MAP and FHIT programs prior to playing Division I hockey for the University of North Dakota.
As a 2016 graduate of the University of North Dakota she was successful both on and off the ice. She was a 4-year starter and letter winner, made the UND Athletics Academic Honor Roll, earned WCHA All-Academic Team Honors, and was a WCHA Scholar Athlete. Samantha obtained a Bachelor of Science in marketing and a minor in sports business from UND. In addition to being a student athlete while attending UND, Samantha worked as an instructor at the REA Hockey Academy and assisted Veritas Hockey with website and media applications.
Samantha had the opportunity to play professional hockey in Stockholm with the Djurgården Dam hockey team. There she led the team's defense in scoring and helped win SM-Guld along with the team's first Swedish Championship in the SDHL.
The experience and knowledge that Samantha has gained from playing hockey have made her the person she is today. A person with a passion for hockey. She has the know-how and realizes the importance and value to support and inspire every individual we work with through the sport of hockey.
