STORIES OF THE YEAR: Lansing native on U.S. hockey roster
Meghan Fardelmann is used to taking on the best ice hockey players in America with her teammates at Boston College.
In November she took her game to another level when she played for the U.S. Women's Hockey Under-22 Select Team in the Women's Four Nations Cup in Leksand, Sweden.
Fardelmann was one of 22 players to make the Select Team, and she played alongside eight former Olympians, including three-time Olympian Jenny Potter.
It marks the second non-collegiate national feat this year for Fardelmann. In October she participated in the U.S. Women's Hockey Under-22 Select Team tryouts and earned the right to play a three-game series against Canada. Also this year, Fardelmann helped Boston College advance to its first NCAA Frozen Four in school history.
Fardelmann had 35 goals and 25 assists during her first two seasons at Boston College. Last season she was the Beanpot Tournament MVP, a three-time Hockey East Player of the Week, the New England Hockey Journal's Player of the Week, a Hockey East Honorable Mention All-Star and a member of the Hockey East All-Academic Team.
