In episode 5 of the Women’s Hockey Life Podcast, Jaclyn Hawkins chats with Karell Emard.

Karell is a highly skilled player, currently a member of the PWHPA, a former student-athlete at St. Lawrence University. She was a member of Canada’s U-22 development team, and winner of the Clarkson Cup in 2017. She coached at Colgate University at the NCAA Division 1 level as well as with Concordia University in Montreal, and has become a celebrated ambassador and voice for the game.
