Angela James is considered the first superstar of women’s hockey. As both a player and an advocate, she led the way for women’s hockey to be recognized locally, nationally and internationally. She represented Canada for seven years, winning seven World Championships and was a member of the women’s gold medal world championship team in 1990, 1992, 1994 and 1997. Her intensity made her one of Team Canada’s greatest clutch performers and she is among the first female players to ever be inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame and the International Ice Hockey Hall of Fame.

Angela James has been featured in the Toronto Star, the Toronto Sun and Historica Canada.
