Playing careerEdit

At the age of 11, Ambrose moved from AA to AAA boys hockey, and in her second season she was named team captain. That was when the hockey world took notice that Ambrose wasn’t the girl, she was that girl, as in the one you know is going to make something of herself. She began to play women’s ice hockey as a 14-year-old in 2008. She competed for Ontario Blue at the 2008 National Women’s Under-18 Championship and participated in all five games. Ontario Blue had a fourth place finish at the tournament in Napanee, Ont. In 2009, she was invited for Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team. She was one of seven defenders named to the final roster, making her just the second 15-year-old (after teammate Kaleigh Fratkin) to suit up for the under-18 squad.[1]

Amrbose was part of Canada's National Women's Under-18 Team to a gold medal at the 2010 IIHF World Women’s Under-18 Championship in Chicago.

During the 2011–12 Canada women's national ice hockey team season, she was a member of the Canadian National Under 18 team that participated in a three game series vs. the USA in August 2011.[4] In addition, she was named the team captain. In the second game of the 2012 IIHF World Women's U18 Championship (contested on January 1, 2012), Erin Ambrose earned two points in a 6-0 shutout of Germany. [5]
