Mikayla Demaiter is celebrating her birthday the best way she knows how.

Back in 2019, Demaiter retired from a Canadian women’s professional hockey league in 2019 after suffering a career-ending knee injury.

“Dear Hockey,

It is time to say goodbye. It is time to turn the page and move to the next chapter of my life, for the first time you will not be my number one focus.

I want to thank you for the places we’ve gone together. I also want to thank you for all the friends you have made me. My family sends their best as well. I know they will definitely miss seeing us together.

I am excited for the future because everything you have taught me will allow me to succeed. There will still be early mornings, new adventures and new friends, and I hope that I embrace them with the same love and passion I did for you.”

Demaiter has since become a succesful model with her own premiums subscription page.

On Sunday, Mikayla wished herself a Happy 23rd birthday with some bathing suit pics on social media.
