TORONTO, ONTARIO - Former Providence College women's ice hockey star Cammi Granato (Downers Grove, Ill.) was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame tonight in Toronto. Granato and fellow 2010 inductee Angela James are the first females to earn the sports' highest honor.
Granato graduated from Providence in 1993 as one of the greatest collegiate players in history. She was named ECAC Player of the Year in three consecutive seasons, and earned ECAC All-Star status four times. While on Smith Hill, she led the Friars to two ECAC Championships and is still the program's all-time leading scorer with 256 points and 139 goals.
After graduation, Granato represented the United States in international tournaments from 1990 to 2005, including nine World Championships. She served as the captain of Team USA in both the 1998 and 2002 Winter Olympics, earning gold and then silver.
Several former Friars and members of the PC coaching staff were in attendance at tonight's ceremony, including Head Coach Bob Deraney and former US Olympian, and current Friar assistant, Karen Thatcher.
Coach Deraney along with Board of Trustee Member Bill Leary `60 presented Cammi with a special framed jersey signed by the 2010-11 women’s hockey team.
The current edition of Providence College Women's Hockey returns to action next Tuesday, November 16, for a 7 p.m. face-off at Dartmouth. Providence returns home on Saturday, November 20, when Northeastern visits Schneider Arena for a 2 p.m. start. Tickets are available by calling the Providence College ticket office at 401-865-GOPC.
