Val Turgeon – Learning Life & Hockey From NHL Dad
by Nathaniel Oliver
"There are not many young ladies who can say that their dad was a first overall draft pick in the NHL. There are also not many young ladies whose dad played in well over 1,000 games and scored even more points. More importantly, there are not many young ladies who are superb hockey players themselves, are well-spoken and have a good head on their shoulders, all the while being supported by loving parents. Valerie (Val) Turgeon fits all of the above.
The sophomore forward for the Harvard Crimson is a kindhearted young woman who imbues the hockey prowess and the personal character of her father. Looking to bring at least one national championship to Harvard (and maybe a few Beanpots too), Turgeon shared her thoughts on her own hockey career, and what her father has meant to it."
