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.

Episode 020: The Winding Road to the NHL (Part IV)

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-rezac-c6e659

In the final installment of The Winding Road to the NHL series, we cover the NHA (00:53-27:23), PCHA (27:29-39:41), and the WCHL (39:47-End). Leagues go to war with one another, and we even see owners within the same league try to take each other down.  After the dust settles on the melee, the NHL is the only thing left standing.

“Buddy” Maracle made his NHL debut in 1931, suiting up for the New York Rangers.  Like Willie O’Ree twenty-six years later, Maracle was the first at something…except no one seems to know it.
