Team Canada Alumna and 2010 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductee Angela James to Be Honoured at 2010 4 Nations Cup
November 7, 2010

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Hockey Canada, in partnership with Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, announced Sunday that National Women’s Team alumna Angela James will be honoured at the 2010 4 Nations Cup in St. John’s and Clarenville, N.L. for being one of the first two women inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

On the evening of Monday, November 8, James will be elected into the Hockey Hall of Fame along with U.S. Women’s Select Team alumna Cammi Granato, in Toronto, Ont. The following day James will fly into St. John’s, where she’ll join Newfoundland and Labrador premier Danny Williams, Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson and Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador President Gerry Evans at the Mile One Centre for the opening puck drop of the 2010 4 Nations Cup, prior to the Canada-United States game at 7:30 p.m. NT on Tuesday, November 9. This game is being broadcast free of charge via webcast at

The pre-game ceremony will include a special tribute to James and Granato, who were rivals on the ice but off the ice were women’s hockey pioneers who continue to make history as they enter the Hockey Hall of Fame. Granato is unable to attend the ceremony due to prior commitments. James will also accompany the National Women’s Team to Clarenville, N.L. on Wednesday, November 10, when Canada takes on Sweden at 7 p.m. N.T. at the Clarenville Events Centre.

James and Granato both participated in the inaugural IIHF World Women’s Championship, held in 1990 in Ottawa, Ont., where James scored 11 goals during the tournament, a record that still stands today. James has won four world championship gold medals, two 3 Nations Cup gold medals and one IIHF Pacific Rim Championship gold medal with Canada’s National Women’s Team. She and Granato, along with Team Canada alumna Geraldine Heaney, became the first women elected into the IIHF Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008.

“Hockey Canada is extremely proud of everything Angela has accomplished, both on and off the ice,” said Bob Nicholson, president and CEO of Hockey Canada. “She is a women’s hockey hero who continues to inspire young players across the country, and is most deserving of this prestigious honour by the Hockey Hall of Fame.”

The 2010 4 Nations Cup is taking place in St. John’s and Clarenville from November 9-13 to help Hockey Newfoundland and Labrador celebrate its 75th anniversary. The event will bring together the best women’s hockey nations in the world – Canada, Finland, Sweden and the United States – for the first time since the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, B.C. The four countries competing at the 2010 4 Nations Cup finished as the top four in Vancouver, led by the gold medal-winning Canadian team.

Single-game tickets for the 2010 4 Nations Cup range in price from $10 to $25, while packages for games at the Mile One Centre are available at prices ranging from $25 for two games on Friday, November 12 to $75 for all six games at the St. John’s arena. A two-game package is also available for the Clarenville Events Centre for $35. Ticket prices do not include service fees.
