Walpole, MA - Kiki Doucette of Bridgewater, MA has committed to Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, New Hampshire where she will lace up for the Ravens for the 2018-2019 season. The NCAA Division I Ravens play in the New England Women’s Hockey Alliance.
Coach Danielle Doherty said coaching Kiki the past two seasons was such a pleasure. “Not only was she outstanding for us on the blue line, she brought so much positive attitude to the team. Kiki never stops smiling." Doherty continued, "This past season, Kiki really took her game to the next level. On top of being so solid defensively, Kiki’s speed and skill made her such a threat offensively as well. Kiki put up 13 points (6g,7a) which made her the second leading scorer for defenseman.
Kiki is the player that you always want on the ice because she rarely ever makes mistakes and she will give your team lots of offensive opportunities.
Kiki is thrilled to begin her collegiate career next season, saying "I am really excited to go to Franklin Pierce! I’d like to thank Coach Danielle for helping me develop as a player these past years and Todd Stirling for always taking time to work with me or just talk to me. I’m ready to see what the future has in store but I couldn’t have done it without my coaches.”
“Congrats Kiki! The entire Express staff wishes you nothing but the best. The Ravens are very lucky to have you! You will be missed," added Doherty.
Kiki will join Express Alumni Meg Gilbride, Emily Kramer, and Marissa Massaro.
