Gorski Ready To Shine At The Next Level
Gorski played last season for the Chatham Outlaws Midget ‘AA’ team, despite being a Bantam aged goalie, and now, the young netminder will take on the Province’s best competition after signing with the PHWL’s Barrie Jr. Sharks.
“I chose to play in Barrie this season because I felt it was the best opportunity for me,” said Gorski.
“Playing in Barrie allows me to live up there and cut down travel time I would use on the way to practices and games that I would have playing on either Bluewater, Windsor, or London. This gives me more time to focus on my school work. Barrie has a great program and I felt it was the best opportunity for me as a goalie and a student.”
Last season, Emma Gorski also played for the Chatham-Kent Secondary School Golden Hawks, and studied in the school’s French Immersion program.
Already considered one of the best 2001 born goaltenders in the Province, Gorski proved that case by backstopping the Midget Outlaws to a Lower Lakes Championship, and being selected to compete at the Ontario Summer Games this August. She had sparking regular season stats last season, finishing with a 1.29 GAA, and racking up 3 shutouts with an 8-1-2 record. During the Lower Lakes playoffs and championship weekend, she collected 4 more shutouts, and an 0.86 GAA.
Now, it’s all about exposure, and continuing to improve for Gorski, as she moves to Barrie this coming season, and works to stake her claim as one of the best goaltenders in the Province, despite being one of the youngest players in the league.
“This season I hope to get lots of exposure, to gain lots of experience, and create great memories with my new teammates. My goal for after the PWHL is to get into a good school academically and athletically. I am looking to get a good education while playing the game I love.”
