150 Canadian Greats in women's ice hockey (1-10)

In the spirit of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Fearless, Frozen Females is recognizing 150 Canadian women (and in some cases, groups) who have made their mark in women’s ice hockey. Although this list will also recognize some of the greatest who have ever played, there is also an effort to focus on others who have made other impressions on the game.

Of note, this list does not intend to rank individuals by order of talent or importance. The numeric listing exists just for the sake of categorization. Whether it be through coaching, administrative or online capacities, the objective of the list is to feature a breadth of overall individuals, recognizing those who otherwise may not be given consideration.

Thank you to all these individuals for their amazing collaboration and admirable efforts in helping to make women’s ice hockey an integral component of the Canadian sporting fabric #Canada150
