Chelsea Mackenzie has also played for St Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia, Canada and in the National Women’s Hockey League based in Canada.
The children were excited about spending the day with a real star.
Chelsea told them about her experiences playing both ball hockey and ice hockey.
She coached the goalies from the children’s club, instructing them on the butterfly style.
Later on in the game she played for the Eagles - the girls team - in goal.
After the match each child took a penalty shot - but they couldn't get passed Chelsea who saved them all.
