PUCK YEAH 51: Southern Storming with Kellye Nelson & Angelique Mawson

The NZWIHL has wrapped up the 2019 season with the Southern Storm claiming the championship, ending both the Auckland Steel’s dominance and their own losing streak.

A highlight of their bounce back campaign has been the play of Minnesota native Kellye Nelson, who ran away with the league scoring race tallying 35 points in 12 games (25 goals, 10 assists). She joins the podcast this week to talk about the Storm, life in Queenstown, and how she came to be in a VISA commercial with Team USA star Hilary Knight.

Along with Kellye, we wrap up this week’s episode with Storm head coach Angelique Mawson, who also coaches the New Zealand Women’s Under-18 team that will be competing at the IIHF Challenge Cup of Asia next month.
