Dr. Hayley Wickenheiser
Four-time Olympic Gold Medalist & Member of the Hockey Hall of Fame
Seven world championships, six Olympic appearances, five Olympic medals — Dr. Hayley Wickenheiser is a titan of sport and a leader both on and off the ice.
A first-ballot Hockey Hall of Fame inductee, Wickenheiser’s hockey IQ is highly respected in both the male and female game. She has played in/coached at four NHL development camps with the Philadelphia Flyers, the Edmonton Oilers, and the Toronto Maple Leafs. In 2018, Wickenheiser joined the Toronto Maple Leafs as assistant director of player development in 2018 before being promoted to assistant general manager in 2022.
Alongside her career in the NHL, Wickenheiser is currently a resident medical doctor practicing in the Toronto area — a pursuit she had dreamt of her whole life and began in 2017 following her retirement from the National Women’s Team after 23 years. She is also the author of Over the Board: Lessons from the Ice.
In addition, Wickenheiser is a member of the Order of Canada, a retired member of the International Olympic Committee’s Athlete’s Commission, member of Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, and founder of The Canadian Tire Wickenheiser World Female Hockey Festival.
