There is no rule that prohibits women from playing in the NHL. Manon Rheaume is a Canadian goaltender who was once under contract with the Tamba Bay Lightning in the NHL. She appeared in a couple preseason exhibition games, but never in a regular season or playoff game. She did play in minor professional leagues (IHL, ECHL, WCHL) as well as Canadian Junior hockey in the QMJHL.
The road to the nhl is to play AA hockey until high school, become an accountant and from there play college hockey to go to the AHL and from there to the NHL.
There are 30 clubs in the NHL.
play hockey for what ever team that drafted them
100% of them.
They are aloud to play in the NHL. One girl did play as goalie. So girls can play in the NHL but the have to be really good.
10 minutes was the longest play time without a stoppage or whistle in NHL hockey.
No they do not, the AHL or American Hockey League is the minor league of the NHL or National Hockey League.
more canadians play in the NHL, there is a avg of 6 canadians on every NHL team
Not that many but there are a lot of ice hockey teams that play for the nhl.
My guess is about 1/2 of Canadian girls play hockey.
About 300 in the nhl.
