Fardelmann represents America in Sweden
Meghan Fardelmann is used to taking on the best ice hockey players in America with her teammates at Boston College.
Now the Lansing native is taking on the world. She participated this summer at the U.S. Women's Hockey Under-22 Select Team tryouts in Lake Placid, N.Y., and she represented her country against Canada after making the cut there.
On Oct. 16 she learned that she would wear the Red, White and Blue once again when she was named to the U.S. Women's Select Team.
The team began play Wednesday in the Women's Four Nations Cup in Leksand, Sweden. The tournament runs through Sunday. The U.S. will play matches against Sweden, Canada and Finland.
Fardelmann is one of 22 players to make the Select Team, and she is playing alongside eight former Olympians, including three-time Olympian Jenny Potter.
Fardelmann has 35 goals and 25 assists in her career at Boston College. Last year 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. She also helped her team advance to the NCAA Frozen Four for the first time in school history last year.
