Angie Bullaro and Manon Rhéaume present “Breaking the Ice: The True Story of the First Woman to Play in the NHL”
October 20, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
Join us as we celebrate the launch of Breaking the Ice, the inspiring true story of Manon Rhéaume, the first and only woman to play a game in the National Hockey League.
“One day, a woman will play in the National Hockey League. If no one prevents her,” said a twelve-year-old Manon Rhéaume. Manon always dreamed of playing hockey. So, when the team her father coached needed a goalie, five-year-old Manon begged for the chance to play. She didn’t care that she’d be the only girl in the entire league or that hockey was considered a “boys’ sport” in her hometown of Lac-Beauport, Quebec, Canada. All she cared about was the game.
