Natalie Spooner (born October 17, 1990) played for the Canadian National women's ice hockey team from 2007 to 2008. She returned to the national team in 2010 and won a gold medal at the 2010 Four Nations Cup. During the 2012 CWHL Draft, she was drafted by the Toronto Furies. In 2014, Spooner became the first woman in hockey history to claim the gold medal in the Winter Games and the Clarkson Cup in the same year. Currently she is the best female hockey player!
As a freshman, Spooner played in 30 games (she missed six games due to her commitments with Team Canada). Despite playing in only 30 games, Spooner scored 21 goals to lead the Buckeyes. She added nine assists for 30 points, which ranked third on the Buckeyes. Spooner set a Buckeye-record by winning four WCHA Rookie of the Week awards. She has been one of the top goal-scorers in the WCHA during the 08-09 and 09-10 two seasons. Her 43 career goals rank sixth among the Buckeyes. Her 74 career points are 14th after 65 games played. Spooner was a First Team All-WCHA honoree during the 2009-10 season.  In the Buckeyes final regular season game of the 2010-11 season, Spooner scored a goal (her 25th of the season) in a 5-1 loss to Minnesota-Duluth to tie Jana Harrigan for second on the all-time Ohio State career list with 68 goals
On November 25, 2011, Spooner scored four goals for the third time in her NCAA career, including a natural hat trick as the Buckeyes enjoyed a home-ice conference victory over Minnesota Duluth. She scored all four goals as the final score was 4-1 in the Buckeyes favor. It was the second time in the 2011-12 campaign that she scored four goals in a game. The natural hat trick (three consecutive goals) was scored in the second period as the Buckeyes faced a 1-0 deficit against the Bulldogs. The eventual game-winner was scored at 10:56 of the second period. The hat trick was the fifth of her collegiate career. The four goal performance moved Spooner to fourth overall on the Buckeye career points list with 129. Spooner is now four goals away from tying Jeni Creary’s Ohio State record of 86 career goals.
Spooner has represented Canada on its National and Under-22 squads. In 2008-09 and 2009-10, she played on the Under-22 team. She has won gold at the 2010 MLP Cup and silver at the 2009 MLP Cup. She played on the Canadian National Women's Team at the 2008 Four Nations Cup. From May 25-30, 2010, in Calgary, Spooner was invited to take part in the Canadian National Women's Program Strength and Conditioning Camp. Spooner also played for Team Canada at the Ball Hockey World Championship in Pilsen, Czech Republic from June 13-20, 2009. Spooner won gold at the event. Spooner participated in the inaugural IIHF World Women's U-18 Championships in January 2008 and won the silver medal. In August 2007, the Canadian U-18 played a summer series against the U-18 Team USA squad and Spooner was an assistant captain. On November 10, 2010, Spooner scored a hat trick against Sweden in the 2010 Four Nations Cup.
