Playing careerEdit

At Edina High School, Boe was a member of both the Edina Hornets' girls' and boys' varsity teams. While she was being recruited, she selected Harvard over the University of Minnesota.


With the Harvard Crimson, Boe was a four-year letterwinner. She was part of three straight ECAC Hockey League tournament titles, three Beanpot championships, and three Frozen Four championship game appearances from 2003-2005. Boe was twice named All-Ivy Honorable Mention and was honored as ECAC Goalie of the Week four times in her career. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from Harvard in 2006.


The 2005-06 season represented a challenge for Boe and the Harvard hockey program. Crimson skaters Julie Chu, Caitlin Cahow, and Sarah Valliancourt took leave for the 2006 Torino Games. The depleted Crimson went on to capture their third-straight Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference Hockey League championship. In game three of the ECAC semi-finals vs. St. Lawrence, Boe made forty saves in the win. In the title match versus Brown, Boe had a 15-save performance to clinch the title. She left Harvard as the program leader in overall record (63-21-5), shutouts (17), goals against average (1.76), and save percentage (.932). [2]


In her final season with the Calgary Oval X-Treme, she registered a 10-1-0 record and led the team to its third consecutive WWHL Championship title. She was also a coach at the Oval Goalie School in Calgary. With the Oval X-Treme, she competed at the 2007 Esso Women’s Nationals in Salmon Arm, BC, and won the gold medal. [3]


Boe has served as an instructor at Robb Stauber’s Goalcrease in Edina, Minnesota. From 2008 to 2010, she worked for Minnesota Hockey during the summer where she help select the top 15-year-old Minnesotans to the national camp. In August 2007, she joined head coach Claudia Asano as an assistant coach at Union, along with first-year assistant coach Ashley Shaidle. [4] Currently, her duties at Union are coaching the goaltenders and working as the recruiting coordinator. In the summer of 2010, she coached at the National U-14 Team Camp in Rochester, NY.
