Playing career[edit]

Bredin competed for many years in the Western Women's Hockey League. The first team she competed with was the Edmonton Chimos from 1996 to 1998. In 1997, she was part of the Chimos squad that claimed the Canadian National women's ice hockey championship. She would help the Calgary Oval X-Treme claim several championships, including the 2004 NWHL, 2005 and 2007 WWHL, and 2007 Canadian national championships. Her final season in the WWHL came in 2007-08, when she played on the Strathmore Rockies inaugural entry in the WWHL.

In 1998, Bredin joined the NCAA's Dartmouth Big Green and finished her career as the most decorated defensive player in the school's history. Bredin broke the school record for the most career goals by a defender. As of 2011, Bredin still held the Dartmouth record for the most career goals by a defenseman with 44, the second-most career assists by a defenseman with 93 and the second-most career points by a defenseman with 137.[2]
