Meaghan Pezon

Meaghan Pezon When Meaghan Pezon was growing up, the only way she could have spent more time on the ice is if she had lived on it. As it was, her backyard was already a rink. By high school, Meaghan's prowess on the ice was solidified — as a senior at Eden Prairie High School, she led her team to an undefeated season, and its first state championship.

She played with the St. Cloud State University Huskies for four years, where her decisive skating and dominant delivery as forward helped the fledgling program develop into a serious division contender. During her senior year, the Huskies were third in the WCHA, which was the first time a team other than the University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin or University of Minnesota-Duluth finished that high in the standings. Additionally, Meaghan was named the Offensive Player of the Week by US College Hockey Online in both 2006 and 2007.

Meaghan was a member of the 2011 Minnesota Whitecaps WWHL championship team and continues to play professional hockey with them.
