Former College Star Jessica Koizumi In Hawaii For Wahine Clinics At KIHA


Wahine hockey players of all ages who want to improve their game have a great opportunity to learn from an accomplished former college star and coach.

Jessica Koizumi, who was born in Hawaii and raised in Simi Valley, California, is at Kapolei Inline Hockey Arenas for four days of clinics this week, starting Tuesday.
The cost is $10 per session for KIHA members and $15 for nonmembers. See schedule below.
Koizumi played collegiately at Minnesota-Duluth, scoring the game-winner among her two goals in a 4-3 double-overtime victory over Boston College in the 2007 NCAA Women’s Frozen Four semifinals. The Bulldogs then lost to Wisconsin 4-1 in the championship game.
Koizumi, who was a captain that season, finished her career seventh in scoring in program history with 84 goals and 71 assists for 155 points.
In addition, she won a gold medal with the U.S. national team in the 2008 IIHF Women’s World Championship in China.
Koizumi’s lengthy playing career included stops with the Minnesota Whitecaps, Montreal Stars, Boston Blades and Connecticut Whale in various women’s pro leagues.
Before moving to Minnesota and then California as a youngster, Koizumi’s first time skating on ice was at Hawaii’s Ice Palace, according to Spectrum News’ Brian McInnis:
