The IIHF Global Girls’ Game originated in 2015. This unique event was created to unite federations around the world by having players from around the globe all playing for the same team. In Canada, we have developed this event to involve players from all Members to create a complete Canadian leg of the Global Game. Players chosen for this event exemplify positive attitudes, teamwork and leadership that reflect the philosophy of the Global Girls’ Game and hockey in Canada. Having two teams with players from all countries playing on each team, it truly brings cooperation and competition together.
