Taylor Heise is grateful for the opportunity to play hockey and learn from others who have done so much for the sport. She recognizes the hard work and dedication that has gone into growing women’s sports over the years. Heise was the first overall pick in the PWHL Draft last year and this will be her sixth World Championship, her third with the senior team.
