Monique Lamoureux-Morando and her sister, Jocelyne, are 2018 Olympic Gold Medalists, two-time Olympic Silver Medalists and six-time IIHF World Champions. The sisters were the first set of twins to ever play on the United States Women’s National Hockey Team.
At 12-years-old, Jocelyne and Monique led an all-boys hockey team to the North Dakota State Championship. The sisters later went on to play at the University of Minnesota where Jocelyne finished freshman year as All-WCHA First Team, and Monique finished the year as the WCHA Scoring Champion and WCHA Rookie of the Year. Jocelyne and Monique then returned home to play at the University of North Dakota.
The sisters helped lead Team USA’s fight for equal pay in the spring of 2017 before the IIHF World Championships. Currently, they are both contributors to the Know Your Value platform, which helps to promote principles of gender equality across all industries. Jocelyne and Monique also volunteer with the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, the largest youth hockey organization for disadvantaged youth in the country. They are committed to growing the sport, to help increase participation and opportunities. With the support of partners like Comcast and CCM, Monique continues to help pave the way for future Gold Medalists.
