Episode 093: Like Lightning – The Manon Rheaume Story

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-g4bf4-c70109

Today, we return to the world of women’s hockey.  It’s been nearly two YEARS to the day since the “Queens of the Rink” series released, and I’d say we’re due

Today’s story is about the first female player to lace up skates for an NHL team.  Manon Rheaume, with the lifelong dream of being a goaltender, became an international sensation when she suited up as a goalie for the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992.

That is hardly the full story, however.  Listen in as we tell of her frequent ups-and-downs, and the numerous roadblocks she had to dodge just to be noticed.
