As a finance major, Nadia Mattivi understands the value of managing risk and investing wisely. That also applies in her hockey career. The Italian women’s national team defender took a risk when she joined the Boston University women’s hockey team to become the first European skater in Terriers history in 2019/20.

Her decision to invest in herself has definitely paid off. This season, as a 22-year-old senior, Mattivi is serving as the captain. Previous BU captains include Canadian greats like Marie-Philip Poulin (2012/13, 2014/15) and Jennifer Wakefield (2011/12).
