Photo by Jeff Vinnick-Hockey CanadaKim St-Pierre began playing hockey at 8 years old, competing against the boys until she was 18. She transitioned to women’s hockey when she was recruited by McGill University, for whom she played from 1998 to 2004 while she completed a degree in kinesiology. She played four seasons with the women’s team and one with the men’s team, becoming just the second woman in Canada to play for a men’s university team.

In 1998 Kim joined the national women’s team, winning gold at five world championships where she was named the tournament’s top goaltender in 2001 and 2004. A three-time Olympic gold medallist, Kim is the women’s national team all-time leading goaltender in games (83), wins (64) and shutouts (29).

Kim recently retired from hockey, but continues to be active in the sports industry. With both a sports recruiting website for student athletes and a deal with a goalie equipment retailer, Kim is just as busy off the ice as she was on it. Kim now lives in St. Laurent with her fiancé and her son.
