HAMDEN, Conn. – The No. 9/10 nationally-ranked Quinnipiac women's ice hockey team has announced sophomore defenseman (Stittsville, Ontario) will participate in the team's monthly #BobcatChat hosted online via Twitter. Roesler will be available at 5:00 p.m. on Monday night to answer any questions from fans who tweet using the hashtag #BobcatChat. The Bobcats will be working in support of youth mental health throughout the month of November and will answer any and all inquiries related to the cause in addition to all game, team and individual questions.

The first two installments of "Bobcat Chat" were held with senior captain Amanda Colin (Burnsville, Minn.) and junior goalie Chelsea Laden (Lakeville, Minn.) earlier this season. This new team initiative signaled the start of a monthly tradition in which a member of the Quinnipiac women's ice hockey team will answer questions from the Bobcat fan base.

Those who have questions or comments for the team can follow and tweet to @QU_WomensIceHky with the hashtag: #BobcatChat. The ticket representatives for the TD Bank Sports Center will gather questions and answers that will be featured on the scoreboard during every home game through the 2013-14 women's ice hockey season. Each Twitter account that asks a question will also be entered into a raffle for free tickets to Bobcat home games this season.

Youth mental health will be a topic of conversation all month with the women's ice hockey teams as they've planned special events in accordance with the subject of mental health among children. Each home game this month the Bobcats will feature a resourced table with information about the team's efforts to combat the stigma surrounding youth mental health. The Bobcats played with purple laces and commemorative sticker on their helmets towards the end of last season in rememborance of Daron Richardson, the younger sister of Cornell sophomore Morgan Richardson, who took her own life on Nov. 2010 at age 14. Quinnipiac hopes to further their connection with the cause in hopes of making a difference in the lives of children.

Roesler had a memorable weekend for the Bobcats as she netted her first career goal in the team's 6-0 victory over Colgate on Friday. She then came back and led the team with five shots-on-goal and +1 rating in the Bobcats' 1-1 tie with No. 3 Cornell. Through 10 games, Roesler has compiled five points (one goal, four assists) while leading the team and ranking tied for ninth in the nation with a +11 plus/minus rating thus far for the season.

The No. 9/10 Bobcats will hope to extend their best start in program history next weekend when they travel to two local ECAC Hockey rivals in Brown (Friday, 7:00 pm) and Yale (Saturday, 4:00 pm).
