Carla MacLeod June 2, 2014
Carla MacLeod, a 2-time Olympic Gold Medalist and 4-time IIHF World Women’s Hockey Medalist, was named the Head Coach of the Edge School female prep hockey team in Spring 2014. MacLeod, originally from Calgary, spent the last 2 years as the assistant coach with the Japanese national women’s hockey team, helping Japan qualify for the Olympic Games for the first time since 1998. Coming off the Sochi 2014 Olympics, MacLeod was looking for the opportunity to give back to the Alberta Female players.
MacLeod attended the University of Wisconsin and played with the Wisconsin Badgers in the NCAA for four years — two of which she served as team captain. Carla retired from hockey in 2010, then coached at Mount Royal University in addition to her role with the Japanese Olympic women’s hockey team.
