No stranger to North American hockey, Noora is honing her skills at the University of Minnesota in between starts for the Finnish womens team. Already a veteran of 5 years of National team experience, Noora is not a stranger to Olympic play either. At only 16 yrs of age she started for Finland in the 2006 Olympics helping the Finns to a 4th place finish.
With 2 World Championship Bronze medals, and with multiple wins over the #1 IIHF ranked Team U.S.A. in tournament games, Raty has no lack of confidence going into the 2010 games. Named the tournaments best goalie in 2007 & 2008, Raty could be arguably the best goalie in women's hockey, certainly without question the best goalie in Finnish womens hockey.
If Finland is going to get back to the podium in Vancouver after narrowly missing it the last 2 Olympics, Noora Raty will have a lot to say in that happening.
