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
61: Susan Dalziel PEI Sports Hall of Fame Having volunteered her time in women's ice hockey in Prince Edward Island since the early 1970s, Dalziel also played, competing with the Spudettes since 1973. Capturing eight straight provincial championships, the Spudettes were also Dominion "B" champions in 1976. The CAHA named her to the Committee for the Development of Women's Ice Hockey, and in 1978, she became the first woman to attend a CAHA General Annual Meeting. At the 1991 Canada Winter Games, she was also named Sport Director for Women's Hockey.
62: Glynis Peters Olympic Team Leader 1997-98 A manager for the Canadian Hockey Association women's team since 1990, Peters was also a former player. At the high school level in Niagara Falls, she captured three straight Powder Puff Tournament wins. Later playing for the Canterbury Rebels club team in Ottawa, Peters was an essential component in the rise of women's hockey in the 1990s, serving as Team Leader for Canada in eight different tournaments, including the 1998 Nagano Winter Games.
63: Elizabeth Graham Goaltending Pioneer While competing with the Queen's Golden Gaels, Elizabeth Graham would make history by becoming the first goaltender to wear a mask in a game. Achieving this feat in 1927, as a means to protect some dental work recently completed, it had the appearance of a fencing mask. Three years later, Clint Benedict would become the first to wear a mask in an NHL game.
64: Delayne Brian Goaltender Having stood between the pipes for Canada at the inaugural IIHF U18 women's world championships, it marked the beginning of a brilliant career for Delayne Brian. After a collegiate career at Wayne State (where she called future Toronto Furies skater Alyssa Baldin a teammate) and with the Robert Morris Colonials, the arrival of Delayne Brian signified a new era in the history of the Calgary Inferno. Transforming the franchise from doormat to dominant, she was recognized as the 2014 CWHL Goaltender of the Year Award winner, signifying the first time that a member of the Inferno captured a major award. Rewarded for her strong season with a chance to compete for Team White at the inaugural CWHL All-Star Game at Toronto's Air Canada Centre, she would return to the second edition of the All-Star Game, competing with a victorious Team Black.
65: Jamie Lee Rattray Player Having graduated as the all-time scoring leader in the history of the Clarkson Golden Knights, Rattray was the first player of Native Canadian heritage to have played on all three levels of Canada's national women's hockey team (U18, U22/Developmental, Senior).
68: Karen Hughes Coach Named Team Canada's head coach for the 2002-03 season, she was also part of Daniele Sauvageau's staff that captured gold at the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Games. Having spent over 10 seasons as a head coach with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, where she coaches the likes of Lori Dupuis, Andria Hunter and Jayna Hefford, she would capture a CIS national championship in 2000-01.
70: Dr. Judy McCaw Pioneer A member of the first Guelph Gryphons team to capture the WIAU provincial university championship in 1966-67, Judy McCaw's name would become synonymous with the trophy for generations. In 1972, the University of Guelph would dedicate the trophy in her honor after winning it in 1971-72. Serendipitously, the 50th anniversary of the Gryphons championship team would result in the Gryphons capturing their second straight McCaw Cup, winning on home ice against the Nipissing Lakers.
