Goaltender Kim Simoneau From Olds Signs With University Of Providence

The first goalie to be part of the upcoming inaugural season for the University of Providence women's hockey team will be Kim Simoneau from Olds. The 18 year old recently signed with the post-secondary institution located in Great Falls, Montana.

An Olds Minor Hockey product will be heading to Great Falls, Montana to continue her goaltending career next season.
 
Kim Simoneau will be part of the inaugural class for the University of Providence women's hockey team in 2018-2019.
 
The 18 year old says she started with Olds Minor Hockey as an overage Atom player and this past season she played in B.C. with the Kimberley Nitro Xpress Hockey Academy.
 
Simoneau is the third player signed by U of Providence.
 
 

 

She is excited to be the first goalie for the Argos.

 

 

Simoneau lists rebound control as one of her strengths as a netminder and she looks up to Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price.
 
 
 
 
 
She says it is only a 5 or 6 hour drive from Olds to get to the University of Providence in Great Falls, Montana.
 
 
 
 
Simoneau's transition to playing at the University of Providence will be made easier as Laurel Davidson - one of her teammates from the Nitro Xpress in Kimberley, B.C - will also be going there.
 
 
 
 
Simoneau notes that at their showcase in British Columbia is where she first met with the University of Providence. She discusses some of the people who have had a big impact on her hockey career.
 
 
 
 
She looks forward to working with Providence's Head Coach Ryne Hueth, who was also a goaltender during his playing days.
