The History of Women’s Hockey

We at LWOS are always on the hunt for the most relevant, interesting infographics to give our regular readers. Today we present you a fantastic infographic prepared by Christyne Kavanagh and our friends at Tucker Hockey that discusses the History of Women’s Hockey.  The folks at Tucker have done a fantastic job in researching the topic, and presenting it in a fun, easy to read form.  If you want a bigger version of the graphic, just click on it.  Hope you enjoy!

Christine Kavanaugh, who prepared the info graphic, had this to say, “Girl’s and women’s hockey is one of the fastest growing games in the world. I produced this info-graphic attached to highlight some interesting facts about the game’s history and its bright future. Today Canada and the United States remain the dominant countries, and other nations must close the gap if women’s hockey is to thrive at the international level.”

The History of Women’s Hockey


We’d like to thank Christyne Kavanagh and her team for all the work they have put in. Its great to look at the history and health of the game as we look back at the pioneer’s of the Women’s game. Its been a big year for the Women’s game, with perhaps the best Women’s Hockey Game Ever coming in the Gold Medal game at the Sochi 2014 Olympics.

We can only hope that the women’s game will continue to grow, and we will see a new generation of stars as exciting as the past. We also hope that the Finns, Swedes, Swiss, Russians, and others chasing our two women’s hockey super powers continue to grow the game and make it an even better competition in the coming year.
