Biography

Forward Kathy McCormack did not play ice hockey for the first eight years of her life, and she spent the next eight playing on boys’ teams. She made her first appearance on a female team in 1991 at the Canada Winter Games representing New Brunswick, and later won a silver medal at the 1995 Canadian Championships and a bronze one at the 1996 edition with the squad. She joined the Maritimes Sports Blades club in 1996 and then qualified for the Canadian national team the following year. Her efforts earned her a trip to the 1998 Winter Olympics, where she suited up for six matches and took home a silver medal in the first official Olympic women’s ice hockey tournament. In 1999 she moved to Oakville, Ontario to skate with the Oakville Ice of the National Women’s Hockey League, but soon took up a job as a grad school teacher and retired from active play. As of 2009 she is a teacher at Albion Heights Junior Middle School in Etobicoke, Ontario, having graduated from the University of New Brunswick, and she carried the Olympic torch through her hometown of Blackville, New Brunswick in preparation for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
