About Sami Jo Small

Sami Jo grew up on the outdoor rinks of Winnipeg. Her childhood rink, the Norberry Community Centre in St Vital now bears her name as the Sami Jo Small Hockey facility. She started playing at an early age following in her older brother Luke's footsteps. She played in the boys AA and AAA system before teams for girls existed. She played her first women's hockey tournament at the age of 14, lining up on defence at the Canada Winter Games in 1991.

Sami Jo first joined Canada women's national hockey team as the 3rd goalie at the first women's Olympic hockey tournament in Nagano in 1998, where Canada won silver. She went on to become Canada's starting goaltender in 1999. Canada won three straight World Championships in '99, ’00, and ‘01 and Sami Jo was twice named to the World Championship All-Star team and top goaltender.

Sami Jo competed in two more Olympic Games in 2002 and 2006, helping Canada win two Olympic Gold medals as well as two more World Championship titles in '04 and '07.
