How do you put it into words, we are so very proud of what she has done for her country" -- Doreen Botterill, Jennifer's mother

"Jennifer, you have been such a tremendous player to our national team... I look at all the young girls who play this game, it continues to grow day by day and it's because of people like Jen who are such great role models" -- Bob Nicholson, Hockey Canada president and CEO.

"Jennifer's contribution to the game is unchallenged and I am confident she will be remembered as one of the top players in female hockey history" -- Peter Woods, Hockey Manitoba executive director.
