Cassie Campbell-Pascall is one of the greatest hockey players in Canadian history. During her 16-year career, she rewrote history and created a pathway for women in sports.

A career started with two unsuccessful attempts at being selected to join Team Canada in 1990 and 1992, Cassie fought through adversity to earn her way on the team in 1994. She went on to become one of Canada’s most decorated hockey players of all-time, winning an Olympic Silver Medal at the first ever Olympic event for women’s ice hockey, to becoming the only Canadian National Hockey Team Captain to take back-to-back Olympic Gold Medals in 2002 and 2006, capturing six World Championships. Cassie then captured an additional two more World Championships and one more Olympic Gold Medal as a Management Consultant.

Following retirement, Cassie joined Hockey Night in Canada’s broadcast team and was quickly called up to become the first woman to do colour commentary on Hockey Night in Canada.

Covering commentary for three Olympic Games, Cassie is currently an analyst for ESPN and a Special Advisor for the PWHL. Her breakaway into sports media and creating opportunities to advance the women’s game is the next phase for the trailblazer to stamp her legacy in hockey.
