Today's guest on Mitlin Money Mindset™ is “The First Woman of Hockey™", Manon Rhéaume. Manon has quite the resume and at the top of the list is being the first and only female to play in an NHL game, which she did for Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992. She was the first female to sign a contract to play professional hockey and had a six-year professional career in the minor leagues. 

As a member of Team Canada, Manon led the team to a silver medal at the 1988 Olympic Games in Nagano, the first year that women's hockey was an official Olympic sport. Talk about breaking barriers in sports, Manon smashed through them! She was a pioneer in paving the way for women in professional sports and now she is sharing her experiences and helping girls everywhere realize they can do it as well. She's doing that through her book, Breaking the Ice, and she's currently working on a feature-length biopic Between the Pipes outlining her journey to the NHL. I am always excited to talk with people who have helped the game of hockey and Manon is one of those that’s had a huge impact.
