Born and raised in Edmonton, Laura Dostaler played for the Edmonton Chimos in the WWHL before joining Team Alberta at the start of the franchise in 2011 – scoring the first goal in franchise history.

Best piece of advice you’ve been given: If you put the time in you can be good at whatever you want to be good at.
Who’s your idol (sporting or otherwise)? My boss, I’ve learned and continue to learn about becoming better from her everyday and she’s always supported me in hockey and growth in life and in work.
Who would be at your dream dinner party (yourself and four others)? Me, mom, dad, my best friend and my siblings but that puts me over the limit by two… I guess someone can sit on the floor.
