Columbus, OH -  The Boston Lady Whalers Elite Hockey Club is proud to share that longtime BLW 2005 National Elite Team goaltender, Genevieve Klein, has committed to Ohio State University for the Fall of 2024!

Genny grew up in Park Ridge, NJ, and played her youth hockey with the New Jersey Devils Youth Boys Team all the way up through the beginning of high school.  Genny first joined the our BLW 2005 National Elite Team in 2016, and spent several summers as the team's brick wall.

Genny had her sights set on Shattuck St. Mary's School in Faribault, Minnesota, and her family said goodbye to New Jersey to move out to Minnesota and be close with Genny.

She spent the past three seasons, and is in her junior season at the school.  In her first two seasons at Shattuck, while a member of the U16 Team, Genny combined for an eye-opening 1.45 Goals Against Average, and a stellar .947 Save Percentage.  Last season, as the starting goaltender on the Shattuck St. Mary's Prep Team, under legendary Head Coach Gordie Stafford, Klein posted a 27-15-6 record in 45 Games Played.  She also earned a .925 Save Percentage and a 2.18 Goals Against Average, and led her team to the semi-finals of the USA Hockey U19 National Championship.

Klein's two brothers, Jameson (2004-born defenseman) and Shane (2007-born defenseman), have been a part of our Boston Junior Whalers Boys program for a number of years as well.  After two strong seasons at Lakeville North High School in Minnesota, Jameson now skates for the Mercer Devils in the NCDC, while Shane is an underclassman at Lakeville North.

"The Klein's have been a model family in our program for a number of years", said Mike Cusack. "We always knew that Genny's ability coupled with her work ethic would lead her to eventually be able to choose her school, and we are very proud of her development as a goaltender and as a person", he continued.

Congratulations to Genny, and the Klein family on this massive step in her path forward.  We can not wait to watch you star in at the NCAA Division I level in the near future.  Go Buckeyes!
