AN OPEN LETTER TO JILL SAULNIER AND BLAYRE TURNBULL
Apr. 5, 2016

Dear Jill and Blayre,

Like so many others across Canada, we are all a little more tired than usual today. We stayed up into the wee hours of Tuesday morning to watch your IIHF Women’s World Championship gold medal game with the United States and we were on the edge of our seats (and in some cases, our beds) as your team battled into overtime with your biggest rival.


We know the ending wasn’t the one you wanted. An overtime loss is always a bitter pill to swallow. But we want to thank you for what you have done for our game in this province.



Before last year’s IIHF Women’s World Championship, Nova Scotia never had a player on the national women’s roster. Now we have two.


Thank you for inspiring every young girl across our province to love the game as much as you two do. You both played the sport the way it should be played and you have proven what hard work and dedication to the game can accomplish.


You may be the first Nova Scotians to play in a world championship but we now know you won’t be the last.


Congratulations on your silver medals, girls. We are so proud that you call Nova Scotia “home.”


Yours in hockey,


Everyone at Hockey Nova Scotia
