Manon Rheaume: Achieving her dream in hockey

Manon Rhueme: Achieving her dream in hockey

Manon Rheaume set the standards for women in hockey, breaking many preset boundaries for the sport. As a goaltender, she played in the professional minor leagues on seven teams leading her to play on the Canadian Women’s national hockey team that propelled them to win medals in the Women’s World Championship and Winter Olympics.

Rheaume was an unassuming lady from Lac-Beauport, Quebec, Canada. But hockey was in her blood at an early age. At the age of 3, she donned her first pair of hockey skates and began dreaming of playing on a real team. Her younger brother also played hockey and Manon would volunteer in the goalie net as practice for him. As she got older, it didn’t matter how talented she was. Getting involved in any of the games was rough, simply because she was a girl.

The tenacity that Rheaume demonstrated paid off. In a 1991-1992 season, Rheaume broke all preconceived ideas about women in hockey when she played in a Junior A men’s hockey game. Her talent was apparent and she set new standards of perception when it came to the role women could play in hockey.

Fans of hockey are not only familiar with the name of Gordie Howe, but most know just about everything about him. Howe overcame incredible odds to become a hockey legend and set an incredible number of records during his playing era.

Born in 1928 in the midst of the depression, Gordie was from a rather poor family in Saskatoon, Canada. A hard working father set a work ethic for Gordie, but the family’s bad financial condition left Gordie as an undernourished and often ill child. Awkward and often shy, he found it difficult to deal with other people. By the time he was five years old, he got his first pair of used ice skates and fell into a love of skating that would last his entire life.

Light Up Your Team’s Ice with the LED Hockey Scoreboard

Led Hockey Scoreboard

Hockey fans are some of the most dedicated and wild fans in the sports industry. The speed and hard hitting contact on the ice is just the kind of explosive sport that fans love to watch and get just as live with. In the stands we erupt with shouts, pounding, and screaming with every shot, hit, and goal. We all love the action so much that we even buy noise makers such as fog horns and thunder sticks to let our team know that we are behind them and to tell the other team we don’t want them here. At every hockey game if there is one thing that fans love it’s the way the scoreboard at a hockey game lights up and the horn goes off at full blast emitting an ear ringing wave of noise, letting everyone know that we have scored. A hockey game is what it is because of the LED hockey scoreboard and the alarm that goes off when we score. Players zoom all over the ice as fast as possible booming into each other and slapping sticks trying to get the one up on each other. However none of it matters until someone sets off the alarm signifying a goal has been earned. When the alarms goes off and the lights start flashing is when we as fans fully come alive. That is why the LED hockey scoreboard is so essential to the game.
