Meghan Agosta’s career on the ice began with figure skating at the age of four, but she added hockey to her sporting life a mere two years later, aspiring to be more like her older brother. She quickly honed her skill as a forward, playing with the Chatam Cyclones in the AAA division and the Windsor Wildcats of the Ontario Provincial Women’s Hockey League. As a member of Team Ontario she scored the goal that secured her team’s victory at the 2003 Canada Games. She then joined Team Canada and, in 2006, participated with the women’s team in their gold medal victory at that year’s Olympic Games. At the tournament she played in five games and scored a hat trick in the match against Russia on her 19th birthday. Four years later she was again on Canada’s gold medal-winning Olympic squad and was named tournament MVP after scoring a record nine goals. As of 2010 she attends Mercyhurst College in Pennsylvania and is studying for a degree in criminal law, hoping to work with a K-9 unit, as well as playing on the school’s ice hockey team. Her success in NCAA Division I hockey has been noticeable, earning numerous rookie awards, tournament MVP three times, College Hockey America’s Player of the Year award twice, their Three-Star Player of the Year Award once and, most recently, captaining the team, along with breaking many records. She has also sponsored a player in the Kingsville, Ontario Minor Hockey Association in hopes of building a foundation for future philanthropic efforts.
