Team USA

Annie Pankowski

A California native, Annie Pankowski began her bright hockey career in the golden state. She saw success early in youth hockey, capturing the 2007 USA Hockey National Championship before quickly making the jump to junior hockey when she was only 16 years old. Annie’s continued success playing in the Junior Women’s Hockey League earned her national recognition. In her highest scoring year Annie posted 102 points in 31 games with the North American Hockey Academy. Her consistent on-ice production at the junior level saw her claim a spot on the USA U18 Women’s Hockey team in 2012, where they captured silver at the Under-18 Women’s World Championships.

In 2014 Annie turned the page, leaving behind a highly decorated youth and junior career as she embarked on her collegiate hockey journey with the University of Wisconsin. She amassed 43 points in 39 games in her rookie season with the Badgers and was named the 2015 National Rookie of the Year. She was also deemed WCHA Rookie of the Year and selected for the All-WCHA Second Team in the same season. The international stage came calling once again, and Annie joined the USA Women’s National Hockey Team and helped propel them to gold at the 2015 World Championships. The next three years of Annie’s collegiate and international hockey career were filled with various accolades including winning gold in the 2016 and 2019 World Championships, and capping off her time in collegiate hockey by captaining her team to winning the NCAA National Championship in 2019.

After her historic tenure at University of Wisconsin, she was drafted 1st overall by the Metropolitan Riveters of the NWHL in 2018. Annie currently stays busy on the ice by advocating for women’s hockey through participating in events such as the PWHPA Dream Gap Tour, the 2019-2020 USA vs Canada Rivalry Series, and the 3-on-3 Women’s Game at the 2019 NHL All-Star Game. She does this all while continuing her training to make the USA Women’s Olympic hockey team for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. When Annie is not playing hockey she can be found at the University of Wisconsin, where she pursues her love for animals and is currently completing a veterinarian degree.
