Fast Growth In Women’s Hockey

from the Winnipeg Sun via Slam,
Women's hockey has grown so fast in the past decade it's hard to recall a time when ponytails poking out of helmets weren't a regular sight around the rink. The number of female hockey players registered with Hockey Canada has more than doubled since the 1998-1999 season, when 29,031 girls took to the ice. In 2004-2005, Hockey Canada reported 65,951 girls were blasting slapshots in rinks across the country.
