One of the best female hockey players in history will go into the Hockey Hall of Fame later this year.
Danielle Goyette was selected as part of the 2017 class this summer.
She says being imortalized at the official ceremony in November is a special honour.
“Growing up, it’s the players that I look up to all in the hall of fame and for me to be able to be part of that and be with them in the hall of fame in November, it’s a dream come true.”
Goyette adds, the announcement is made extra special because she’s one of only a handful of women to be inducted.
She sees it as an inspiration for other young ladies to get into the sport.
“We have girls now growing up now and going through sport but they gain more confidence,” said Goyette. “If you put the effort into it, you can accomplish anything you want.”
Among Goyette’s many achievements, she took home gold at 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and at the 2006 Olympics in Torino.
