"Bubble Hockey" with Mikyla Grant-Mentis (Toronto Six Forward, Reigning NWHL MVP‪)‬ Get Your Head in the Game

    • Sports

Episode 16 brings with it my conversation with Toronto Six forward Mikyla Grant-Mentis. Currently the reigning Newcomer of the Year and Most Valuable Player of the National Women's Hockey League (NWHL), Mikyla enjoyed a phenomenal season with the Toronto Six, leading the league in points while also becoming the most decorated player in a single NWHL season at just 22 years old. With the Toronto Six being the newest expansion franchise to join the league, they didn't even get the chance to play in front of their home fans in Canada during their inaugural season, as the NWHL established a bubble-like tournament in Lake Placid, New York. Regardless, after a successful, albeit shortened, campaign, Mikyla is back in Canada enjoying the offseason and joins the podcast to chat about the challenges her and her teammates faced while playing in Lake Placid, how her own mentality has evolved with the growth of women's hockey, and her hopes of the future as the league marches on towards sustainability.
