Cassie Campbell-Pascall played for Canada at three Olympics and captained Canada to gold medals at the 2002 and 2006 Olympics. She is regarded as one of the finest female hockey players ever. However, she credits 2013 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Geraldine Heaney for helping her become the player and person she became.
I never saw the 1990 IIHF World Women’s Championship live. That's where Geraldine Heaney became famous for scoring what is still considered the greatest goal in the history of women's hockey.
But I remember when I was at a tournament in Canada when I was 16 years old some members of Canada's national team came and all the young kids got a chance to meet them. That was the first time I met her. Then, of course, we played together on the national team starting in 1994. I played club hockey with her as well.
Considering all the great experiences I've had with Geraldine, there's no question in my mind that she's earned her place in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
