Why she kicks ass: Geraldine’s known as a trailblazer in women’s hockey and will be inducted into the sport’s Hall of Fame on November 11th. She scored the iconic winning goal for Canada in the 1990 World Championships vs. the United States. Geraldine made her mark on the sport at a time when women’s ice hockey players weren’t supposed to skate like boys:
"I started at a time when a lot of girls weren’t playing. I was the only girl playing with my brothers. At the time, I never thought only boys played hockey. As a kid you don’t care," says Geraldine. "I would always be going to the rink and asked my dad, ‘How come I can’t play?’ At that time the girls weren’t allowed to play with the boys. So he looked for a team for me and I had to play with girls four or five years older."
