by Dave Stubbs @Dave_Stubbs / NHL.com Columnist

NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Manon Rheaume, the trailblazing goalie who broke hockey's gender barrier from peewee through the NHL. Rheaume was the first female to participate in the prestigious Quebec International Peewee Tournament, which changed its rules to allow her participation in 1984. She went on to become the first woman to play in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (in 1991) and is the first and only woman to play in the NHL.

On Sept. 23, 1992, Rheaume made hockey history when she played the first period of the Tampa Bay Lightning's preseason game against the St. Louis Blues; she also played one period the following year in a preseason game against the Boston Bruins. Rheaume also played 25 games for teams in the ECHL, West Coast Hockey League and International Hockey League.

The 48-year-old remains the only woman to play a game in any of the four North American major sports leagues -- NHL, Major League Baseball, the NBA and NFL. As a goalie with Canada's national women's team, she was a silver medalist at the 1998 Nagano Olympics and helped Canada finish first at the IIHF Women's World Championship in 1992 and 1994.
