Submitted By claudia santagapita-Speiran on Saturday, February 13, 2021
The London Devilettes Girls Hockey Association is proud to announce Kalley Armstrong and Cassidy Martin as the U18 AA coaches.  This will be their second season behind the bench with the Devilettes and the coaching tandem brings a wealth of experience and passion to the U18 program.  

Cassidy Martin

Like most, she fell in love with the game at a young age. Cass played competitive boys and girls hockey throughout her childhood in Alberta. She played four years in the Alberta Female Hockey League (AFHL) for the Calgary Bruins where she captained the team. She was recruited to play for St. Thomas University in Fredericton, New Brunswick, where she played four years in the CIS. In her third year as assistant captain helped led the team to the CIS National Championship tournament. After graduating, she returned to Alberta and was named assistant coach for the Southside Athletic Club Minor Midget AAA boys team. This past season, Cass coached London Devilettes U18 AA girls team. Cass is committed to developing girls hockey in the London area, she currently coaches at CM2 Skills Development and runs girls development programs and Indigenous youth hockey camps with Armstrong Hockey. She is looking forward to this upcoming season.


Kalley Armstrong 

Kalley played four years of NCAA Division 1 hockey for Harvard University between 2010-2015. She captained the team in her senior year and helped the Crimson to win the 2015 Ivy League Championship, the 2015 ECAC Season Championship, the 2015 ECAC Tournament Championship, the 2015 Beanpot Championship. That year the team finished as the 2015 Frozen Four National Championship Runner-Up. As a junior she was selected to the All-Ivy League Second Team and named the ECAC Best Defensive Forward. Kalley suffered a severe concussion at the conclusion of her junior season in 2013 and after recovering a year later and returning to play for the Crimson in 2014, she decided to retire from hockey and pursue coaching. Prior to going to Harvard, Kalley played four years with the Toronto Aeros and in her final year as captain, the team won the PWHL Championship and the Provincial Championship. Kalley has coached at multiple levels including the London Devilettes U18 AA team in 2020-2021, Bantam A Minor team for the 2019-2020 season, Team Ontario in the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC) in 2018 and for the Western Women's Hockey Team as an assistant coach in 2017. Kalley currently owns Armstrong Hockey, a hockey development school based out of London, Ontario.
