SZABADOS_ShannonHaving grown up playing most of her hockey with and against boys, Shannon Szabados joined Canada’s National Women’s Team in 2006. In her debut wearing the maple leaf on November 7, she recorded a 3-0 shutout win over the United States. Szabados would be the alternate at the 2008 IIHF Women’s World Championship before officially suiting up in 2009.

Szabados started three games at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, where she allowed just one goal on 51 shots. She earned a shutout in the gold medal game victory over the United States. Her tournament-leading 98.04 save percentage led to her being named the top goaltender by the directorate and she was also named to the media all-star team.

In 2002 Szabados  appeared in four exhibition and one regular season game for the Tri-City Americans making her the first woman to play in the Western Hockey League. She went on to play in the Alberta Junior Hockey League before starting her post-secondary career. While a student at Grant MacEwan University, she was named MVP of the men’s hockey team in 2010-11. The following season she became the first woman to play for the men’s hockey team at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT). In 2012-13 she led NAIT to its first Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference championship title in 16 years
