Oakville native and Canadian national women’s hockey star Brianne Jenner is giving back to the game and her hometown.

Jenner, who scored both goals in Canada’s 2-1 gold-medal win over the United States at the 2022 IIHF Women’s World Championship in Denmark last month, has joined the Oakville Hornets Girl Hockey Association.

The 31-year-old was recently named the Director of Coaching and Player Development for the local girls minor hockey association.

With two Olympic gold medals and three golden finishes at the IIHF women’s world championship, Jenner should prove to be a huge influence for young female players in Oakville.

“Brianne will bring her wealth of experience at every level of hockey to helping our players and coaches achieve the next level in their development,” the Oakville Hornets minor hockey association said.

“It is also our hope that Brianne will bring a fresh perspective to how the Hornets might improve throughout the organization.”

Jenner will be lacing up her skates regularly for on-ice sessions with teams in the organization. As well, she will be offering seminars on how players can improve their game and pursue their hockey aspirations.

Along with her new role with the Hornets, Jenner plans to continue her hockey career with Canada’s national team. She is currently a board member with the Professional Women’s Hockey Players’ Association.
