The former ice hockey player Mikayla Demaiter was born on 14th May 2000, in Chatham, Ontario, Canada, and decided to use her minor sports fame to build the foundations of a modeling career when she hung up her stick and gloves in June 2019. Despite being forced to leave the sport after undergoing knee surgery due to an injury, Mikayla made the best of the unexpected situation; these days, the social media sensation has over three million Instagram followers, and is known for her sultry snaps and striking blue eyes.
Mikayla, who is currently signed to Verge Agency, has often been described as “the world’s sexiest ice hockey goalkeeper”. After a few years playing for the Bluewater Jr. Hawks in the Provincial Women’s Hockey League, she turned her talents to becoming a brand ambassador and sports influencer.
Although Mikayla’s 5ft 4in (162cm) height has closed certain doors to her in the modelling industry, the beautiful blonde has impressive measurements (36-25-35) and weighs just 55kgs (110lbs). As is common amongst models and influencers, Mikayla also has an OnlyFans profile, onto which she uploads exclusive risqué content for her paying fans. As each photo and video of Mikayla’s racks up thousands of likes, it’s safe to say that the platform is bringing in plenty of money for the Canadian.
Unbeknownst to many, the former ice hockey player graduated from the University of Western Ontario before becoming the online star she is today, meaning that she has a degree to fall back on if modeling doesn’t work out in the long run.
The Bluewater Jr. Hawks are an amateur hockey team hailing from Strathroy, Ontario. The team is based out of the Gemini Sportsplex, and has been a member of the Provincial Women’s Hockey League since 2004. Previously, the team was a member of the Southwestern Girls Junior Hockey League.
To date, the most notable player of the Bluewater Jr. Hawks has been Mikayla; nevertheless, many of the current team players have shown promise in the ice hockey field, such as Fiona Waddick, who was invited to attend the OWHA U18 High Performance Development Camp, and Mylie Ellis and Maggie Alcock, who were selected to attend the OWHA U16 High Performance Development Camp. Hayden Summers, the team’s current defenseman, also recently won a gold medal with Team Ontario at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championship.
Personal Life, Net Worth
Many netizens have previously compared Mikayla’s before and after photos, and speculated that the blonde has gone under the knife quite a few times despite her young age. The first mention of Mikayla’s plastic surgery was made in January 2021, when she was rumored to have got breast implants, Botox injections, and a facelift.
Mikayla herself has been coy about the allegations, and there was no hard proof of the Canadian having surgery done, mainly because she didn’t upload many photos of her body during her goalkeeping days. Still, many believe that she has undergone a number of cosmetic and plastic surgeries to achieve her near-perfect physique.
Unlike some influencers, Mikayla is very coy about her family and dating history, and prefers to keep her social media as impersonal as possible (perhaps due to her raunchy OnlyFans). There’s no available information online regarding her parents or possible siblings, but we do know that she has previously been linked to two men: Dan Davies and Kurtis Gabriel.

Dan Davies is impossible to find online, but is believed to have been Mikayla’s boyfriend during her hockey goalkeeper days. Meanwhile, Kurtis Gabriel is a retired Canadian hockey player born in Newmarket, Ontario on 20th April 1993, and where he was raised. Aged six, Kurtis’s parents divorced, and he was subsequently brought up by his mother Kim and maternal grandparents.
During his childhood, Kurtis proved himself to be talented at multiple sports. Despite playing Triple-A level hockey at just ten years old, the promising athlete dropped two divisions due to the stress he underwent when his father committed suicide. The tragic incident would lead to him later collaborating with the Shared Grief Project, a non-profit organization aiming to provide support for those affected by childhood bereavement.
Despite considering a college basketball scholarship, Kurtis eventually pursued a hockey career. He played for the York-Simcoe Express and Markham Waxers, before being invited to the Jr. A Newmarket Hurricanes and Georgina Ice Jr. C evaluation camps, at one of which he impressed Bryan Denney, a talent scout for the Ontario Hockey League, and was invited to their development camp.
During Kurtis’s rookie campaign, he played 40 games for Owen Sound Attack and scored four points. His breakout season came after returning to Owen Sound in 2012-13. In March 2014, Kurtis finally moved up the ranks and signed his first three-year entry-level contract with Minnesota Wild; he was then reassigned to the Minnesota Wild’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Iowa Wild.
The 2017-18 season was a lackluster one for the hockey player after he accidentally fell on a skate blade and had to undergo surgery. In July 2018, he signed a one-year contract with the New Jersey Devils and began the 2018-19 season with their affiliate, the Binghamton Devils. His time at the Devils was followed by a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers, another one-year contract with the San Jose Sharks, and a one-year, $750,000 deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Kurtis announced his retirement from professional hockey in September 2022. According to reports, he and Mikayla have been in a relationship since April 2020, although they rarely post each other on social media. These days, Kurtis is part-owner of Healthy Eats Inc. and is currently working on a new project, Alphabet Sports Collective, which aims to include more gay and trans players in ice hockey.
Many sources list Mikayla’s net worth as $1.5 million, thanks to her successful OnlyFans and social media platforms. Meanwhile, her boyfriend Kurtis is also said to be worth approximately $1 million, after earning over $2 million through his professional hockey career.
