Abby Hoffman-When no
female leagues were available to her, Hoffman cut her hair and was
registered as a boy "Ab Hoffman" in order to play hockey in the mid 50's.
She was only 8 years old at the time and had everyone convinced she was a
male until she participated in an all-star game that required players to
submit their birth certificates. Hoffman was ejected from the league and
her story made international news. She later assisted the Canadian Amateur
Hockey Association in implementing a national women's championship, and
today, representatives from each province vie for the Abby Hoffman Cup.
