Kudos to Cammi - First Female in NHL HOF...

A HUGE Hockey Mom fist bump and kudos galore to Cammi Granato, the All-Time Top Scorer of the U.S. Women's Hockey Team. for being the first female player welcomed into the NHL Hall of Fame! This fabulous player continues to pave the way for young women in hockey and to be named to the HOF is a well-deserved honor for this tremendous athlete. Although no women are among the past or present ranks of the NHL, Cammi led the U.S team to a Gold and a Silver medal and has already earned a spot in the International Ice Hockey Hall of Fame. She's also married to a former NHLer and does some broadcast commentating for the League.

HM is always thrilled to see young women get into this great game and am envious that it's too late for me to participate (alas, I cannot master the art of skating backwards - maybe someday). So all you hockey gals out there, uncork your finest champagne and toast to Cammi!
