Noora Räty played in her first Olympics for Finland at age 16 and has since won two Olympic medals.

She won two NCAA championships, including a perfect 41-0-0 season in 2012-13 that included 17 shutouts, finished her college career with 49 straight wins and set the University of Minnesota record for shutouts.
