Canada West Ringette Teams 1990 & 1992
Ringette Team - Inducted 1994
Ringette, similar to hockey, is a fast-paced game with a ring and straight stick used by the skaters instead of a puck and bladed stick. In 1992, the Ice Hall in Helsinki, Finland set the stage for the second World Ringette Championships. Canada was represented by a Western and Eastern team. Both teams made it through round-robin play undefeated, but when they faced each other, only one Canadian victor could emerge. With the score tied at five and 25 seconds left in the game, Calgary's Lisa Brown got the ring past the opposing goalie for her third goal of the game to win the gold medal for Canada. Team Alberta was the top ringette team in the world in 1990, also. Team Alberta was comprised of all-star players from across Alberta.
