There is no rule to prevent it. One woman, G Manon Rheaume of Canada was invited to the Tampa Bay Lighning's training camp in 1992 and 1993 and played in an exhibition game each of those years. She also played in regular season games in the IHL and ECHL from 1992 to 1994, besides having a distinguished career with the Canadian Women's National Team.

Women are allowed in the NBA. However, women are just not physically capable of playing with people as fast and strong as Derrick Rose, as big and tough as Shaquille O'Neal, and as tall and lanky as Yao Ming. Women can be drafted, but are not because they cannot play with the men at a competitive level at all.

Can you be an equipment manager for mens NHL and be a woman and how do you get experience for that?

No, since the NHL is only meant for men they haven't yet let a woman into it and the only place i think you can get the experience is being a water <<girl>> for a team sport. However if your a girl that is looking into this i suggest that you fight for the right of woman and you never know you may become the first woman to take part in the NHL i really hope you make it though. Because, i play hockey and the goalie on my team has the dream of becoming a goalie in the NHL and even though it's for men that's not stopping her and I've also encouraged her to try too!
