Manon Rheaume and other tidbits
Today is the 18th anniversary of when Manon Rheaume became the first female to play in an NHL exhibition game when she suited up and played goal for the Tampa Bay Lightning. On Sept. 23, 1992, Rheaume played one period, faced nine shots and gave up two goals for the expansion Lightning against the St. Louis Blues. Today, Rheaume is a 38-year-old mom who runs The Manon Rheaume Foundation, which assists young women in fulfilling their aspirations.
