  • The crash saw Maki, who is much smaller than Seaton, suffer a concussion
  • Despite the NHL promoting the Team Trans Ice Hockey draft tournament, next to nothing has been published about it or the incident
  • Seaton is a member of the New York City Gay Hockey Association and a member of the Rensselaer Rejects amateur hockey team

A male-to-female transgender ice hockey player who left her female-to-male rival concussed during a game has been identified as an amateur New York athlete.

Lexi Seaton, 32, earned backlash after leaving Danny Maki knocked out on the ice when she slammed into him during the Team Trans Ice Hockey draft in Middleton, Wisconsin, late last month.

Seaton, who also identifies as bisexual, is a member of the New York City Gay Hockey Association and a member of the Rensselaer Rejects amateur hockey team.

Her non-binary wife, Jessie, 33, who was on the same team playing goalie, is a software developer and IT consultant who has previously lashed out at ‘terfs,’ trans-exclusionary radical feminist.

Seaton, of South Glens Falls, who was the 15th overall draft pic for the Rensselaers, currently plays as No. 90 for the group’s Green and Rejects team. 

According to the Rensselaer’s roster, Jessie joined her wife on the teams this season.  

While Seaton, a mother of two who previously went by Kyle, appears to dedicate her social media to pics of her on the ice and with friends and family, Jessie appears to focus her account promoting woke causes. 

Jessie, a graduate of Indiana Tech, has shared memes mocking Harry Potter author JK Rowling, who has been labeled a terf for her criticisms against transgender women. 

She’s also shared several posts taking jabs at people who criticize the trans community, essentially calling them uneducated on the facts of gender. 

In other posts, Jessie lumped together terfs, sex worker exclusionary radical feminists, and pro-life advocates as misogynists who are ‘weirdly obsessed’ with other people’s life and make up ‘nonsensical arguments to fit their narrative.’ 

Seaton and Jessie did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment.  

While a recent Facebook post suggests the women have no plans to stop playing hockey in games that promote trans and non-binary players, some have said November’s incident was a prime example of the dangers of letting stronger and more powerful transgender women compete against small biological females, or transgender men.

Maki was playing for Team Black against Seaton’s Team Pink for the tournament, when he was struck on the ice by the pink-and-blue-haired player. 

The force of the knocked Maki off his skates and sent him spinning into the rink wall .

He was left lying immobile on the ice, and he was stretchered off to hospital afterwards where he was diagnosed with a concussion.

After the tournament, Maki posted a statement announcing he was okay, but gave a confused explanation of what happened.

‘I was playing the puck, and I took a very odd fall into the boards,’ he wrote, explaining he was concussed and left with some muscle strains, but made no mention of the hit from #90.

Maki’s teammate Mason LeFebvre was acting as goalie for Team Black and was reportedly visibly shaken by the scene.

After letting a goal in from the tackler in a subsequent play, LeFebvre broke down in tears and collapsed in a corner, and had to be coaxed back to his skates as the crowd chanted ‘We love Mason.’

Quilette journalist Jonathan Kay watched the tournament in person, and accused the NHL, Vice, and Hockey News magazine of covering up the accident, as well as what he claims was an obvious advantage enjoyed by the trans-woman dominated Team Pink.

The NHL posted a tweet hailing the groundbreaking tournament as a model of inclusivity – but made no mention of the outcome of the tournament.

Vice News sent a five-person camera crew to record the games, but hasn’t published or broadcast anything about the game.

Hockey News parroted a line from Team Trans Ice Hockey’s official Twitter account saying that ‘the arena was buzzing with trans joy for two solid days.’

No mention of results or the concussion was reported.

Neither the NHL nor Team Trans Ice Hockey responded to DailyMail.com’s request for comment. 

Maki detailed what had happened on Instagram, but described the incident as an ‘odd fall,’ despite himself sharing the video – which clearly shows he was tackled.

Kay claimed that the tournament’s outcome was telling of the imbalance of the problems with transgender women competing against biological women, or trans men.

Many scientists believe most trans women who have gone through puberty as a boy enjoy considerable physical advantages over biological women – even after beginning hormone treatment as they transition. 

Kay pointed out that Team Pink – which was largely comprised of trans women- not only won the entire tournament, but flattened the opposing Team Black – which had only two trans women – in the finals with a 7-1 win.

‘There [was] just an enormous difference in size between the two teams — height, weight, shoulder width, muscles — the differences were plain to even a child,’ Kay quoted a member of the audience telling him. 

‘I don’t know how the teams were made,’ they added. ‘But any [fan] could see that this couldn’t possibly be fair, and that someone could get hurt — and someone did.’

In just the second period of the championship match, Team Pink could reportedly be heard discussing how to end the game early, with one player suggesting the game be called on the spot with the announcement that ‘everyone won.’

The hockey tournament is the latest incident in the ongoing debate about the role of trans athletes playing in sports divisions for the genders they identify with, rather than what they were biologically born into.

The row was largely sparked by University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, who competed on the school’s men’s swimming team for two years before transitioning to a female and joining the women’ team.

Though Thomas underwent hormonal therapy – as per the NCAA’s guidelines at the time – she went on to dominate the national competition in women’s swimming, smashing records on the way to winning the women’s 500-yard freestyle at the NCAA championships.

Though Thomas underwent hormonal therapy – as per the NCAA’s guidelines at the time – she went on to dominate the national competition in women’s swimming, smashing records on the way to winning the women’s 500-yard freestyle at the NCAA championships. 

Transgender athletes have now become a prominent political target, with many conservative states pushing through laws that require high school athletes to compete as the sex they were assigned at birth.

Supporters say it’s unfair to expect girls to compete against trans athletes who often have considerable biological advantages – especially when prize money or scholarships are at stake.

Critics say the bills target an already very vulnerable minority, most of whom just want to join in with school sports for enjoyment, rather than competitive reasons.  

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a proclamation that declared the NCAA runner-up, Florida-born Emma Weyant, as the real winner of the women’s 500 title.

The NCAA has changed its transgender eligibility guidelines to allow each sport to follow the rules set by each sport’s national governing body.
