Biography

Ukrainian-Canadian Tammy Lee Shewchuk’s ice hockey career began in boys’ leagues with the Lac St-Louis Lions in 1994 as a forward and the only female on the team. Soon after, she became the first female non-goaltender to play in the Quebec PeeWee tournament. She graduated from Harvard University with a degree in English Literature, playing on the women’s ice hockey team all four years and known as the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s all-time top scorer at her graduation. During her time there she helped lead her team to a college championship and earned the university’s John Dooley Award for her efforts, yet she was still cut from Team Canada before they travelled to the 1998 Winter Olympics. She did, however, join the team for their World Championship gold medals in 2000 and 2001. The following year she made the Olympic team, played in five games and earned a gold medal in the tournament. She began coaching women’s ice hockey at Wesleyan University of Connecticut in 2004 and also coached while acting as the assistant dean of admissions at the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey from 2002 through 2004. She is married to Michael Dryden, the son of Ken Dryden, a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
