A brief history of women and girls on ice.

Women and girls have taken to ice hockey in unprecedented numbers over the last two decades. Female leagues and co-ed programs have changed the face of the game in many communities, and elite women’s hockey has emerged as an intercollegiate and Olympic sport.
New territory, to be sure. But women’s hockey is hardly a new game. In fact, women and girls have been forechecking, backchecking and crashing the crease for over a century.

The Canadian Hockey Association says the first recorded women’s hockey game took place in 1892 in Barrie, Ontario. “Total Hockey,” the official encyclopaedia of the NHL, places the first game in Ottawa, where the Government House team defeated the Rideau ladies team in 1889. By the turn of the century, women’s hockey teams were playing across Canada .
