Twenty years ago today, Manon Rhéaume became the first (and only) woman to play in an NHL exhibition game.

Noora Räty’s words upon her retirement.
"In fact, I don’t feel that women’s hockey can grow or get any better in the future if the USA or Canada don’t get a professional league started soon. That is the next critical step that our sport needs to take or our sport will never be respected like it should. Asking players to work full-time and then training like a pro athlete at the same time is just too much and unfair."
I agree. For every grown man who calls women’s hockey ‘exhibition games’ or ‘fake hockey’, there are a dozen little girls who are growing up to love a game and a way of life that means the world to them. For every asshole hockey fan who scoffs at the idea of a women’s league there are a dozen fans, male and female, who would be excited to see a hard fought game between two worthy opponents, regardless of gender. There is never a good time to do something world changing. There is only a necessary time.
