About  Mélisa Kingsley

Mélisa Kingsley was a proud alumni of the Sudbury Lady Wolves program.  Her hard work, natural skill and leadership on and off the ice inspired her teammates, her coaches and the many young players that have followed her. Mélisa had a relentless desire to succeed. Her passion for hockey supported her teams through many provincial championships and eventually a Esso Cup gold medal in Red Deer, Alberta. Mélisa was then recruited by the University of Ottawa to play alongside former teammates at the Varsity level. Prior to the start of her university playing career, Mélisa was diagnosed with sarcoma cancer and began extensive treatment. Despite this adversity, she was determined to play the game she loved. Her resilience shone through and she was able to play several games for the Gee-Gees during the 2017-2018 season. She scored her first goal of her varsity career in front of family and friends in Sudbury when the Gee-Gees played the Laurentian Voyageurs. 

Unfortunately, in late 2018 Mélisa lost her battle with cancer.  Shortly after her passing, the Mélisa Kingsley Memorial Scholarship was formed.  Mélisa was a dedicated student, talented athlete, and loving sister. This scholarship is awarded to student-athletes who best demonstrate Mélisa's passion for sport and learning in pursuing a College or University education.


About the MK23 Memorial Tournament

The MK23 Memorial Tournament is held in Sudbury, Ontario. This annual event is an opportunity for female hockey players to honour Mélisa by showing the same dedication, passion and enjoyment for the sport that she did. This event would not be possible without the support of the Kingsley family and Mélisa's many friends. 

All proceeds earned through the MK23 Memorial tournament will be donated to the Mélisa Kingsley Memorial Scholarship fund. For more information about the scholarship, please visit the link below:
