Cammi Granato was America’s first female hockey star, starring on the U.S. national team for 15 years and leading the team to gold in the 1998 Olympics, a victory that inspired girls in all parts of the country to begin playing hockey. For her record-breaking career and her efforts popularizing the women’s game, Granato will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday.
