BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - A home grown Olympic hero returns to her alma mater.
Team USA Hockey defender Emily Pfalzer met with the Nichols School girls prep hockey team on Wednesday.
She spoke with students at the school's ice rink for about a half an hour.
Then she headed to the middle school for a question and answer session with students about her gold medal experience on the world stage.
Team USA defeated Canada during the gold medal game at the Winter Olympics in South Korea last month.
It was America's first gold medal since the Nagano games in 1998.
