Alberta’s 2001-07 women’s hockey teams inducted into CW HOF

It was a streak unlike any other in women’s hockey at the university level in Canada.

The Alberta Pandas string of dominance during the early 2000s has landed the dynasty in the Canada West Hall of Fame.

Between the 2001-02 and 2006-07 seasons, Alberta won five CIS national titles, six consecutive Canada West titles, and posted a remarkable 123-game unbeaten streak.

Alberta went nearly 1,500 days without a loss during the program’s dynasty run, posting a 123-game stretch (122 wins and one tie) from February 17, 2001 to March 13, 2005. From October 28, 2000 to October 21, 2005, the Pandas went undefeated in Canada West regular season games, with 83 victories and three draws.

Led by head coach Howie Draper and a cast of outstanding players, including two-time CIS Player of the Year Danielle Bourgeois, the Pandas posted a string of success that will likely never be equalled.
