Angela James' Accomplishments More Than Worthy Of H.H.O.F. Induction

Angela James was a player before her time.James was a dominant player at every level of hockey she played, from street hockey with boys in her Toronto neighborhood to youth hockey leagues, college and the IIHF World Championship, which she helped Canada win in 1990, 1992, 1994 and 1997. She wasn't included on Canada's roster for the 1998 Nagano Olympics, where women's hockey was played for the first time, and former teammates contended that she would have made a difference against the United States, which won the tournament, had she been included.
