Kate has spent her entire life in small towns in Wisconsin, near the Minnesota border. Despite the location, her life has been relatively… not full of hockey?
Until recently. Kate began learning about hockey on the Leafs in the 2017-2018 season, and learned, rather quickly, about the joys and heartbreaks associated with the sport.
Reading Kate’s posts will give you a taste of a bit of sarcasm, a bit of analysis, and a whole lot of love for hockey (and the Wild).
