FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
First Two Women Elected to Hockey Hall of Fame
Cammi Granato was ECAC Player of the Year three consecutive seasons from 1991-93, while playing for Providence College. She then played in Canada for the Concordia Stingers, helping that team to three Quebec titles. Granato was also a 15-year member of the U.S. Women's National Team beginning in 1990 and led Team USA to the gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics.
"I dreamed of being in the NHL my entire life and this certainly makes up for those dreams," Granato said. "Being amongst the first women to play at college and later at the Olympics, it certainly was worthwhile being a hockey pioneer".
Toronto native Angela James starred in the 1970's and early 1980's in the Central Ontario Women's League and was the league's leading scorer for eight seasons and MVP on six occasions. A medalist in 12 National Championships, she was MVP in eight of them. Angela has also won four world championship gold medals (1990, 1992, 1994 and 1997).
"On behalf of everyone in women's hockey, I am truly honored," James said. "As a kid I went to the Hall and was in awe of those who had been inducted. I am delighted to be able to join them."
