The Hockey Hall of Fame announced yesterday that it would be inducting three-time Olympic gold medallist and five-time IIHF world champion Kim St-Pierre, who is from Châteauguay, Quebec. This is the first time in hockey history that a female goalie will be included into the Hockey Hall of Fame, and Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante marked the occasion with a celebratory tweet.
“Congratulations to the very inspiring Quebecer Kim St-Pierre, 1st goalkeeper in women’s hockey history to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Bravo to Quebecer Kevin Lowe who will also be inducted in 2020!”
