Players asked questions about how to get to the next level and attract interest from NCAA teams. Coaches asked for tips behind the bench. Players commented on the lack of female coaches and referees.

It all happened here on Our Game.

Meet the experts 

James, an eight-time MVP on the international stage, was a prolific goal-scorer for Canada throughout the 1990s, earning the title 'the Wayne Gretzky of women's hockey.' A trophy was named after her and is now awarded to the top scorer in the Canadian Women's Hockey League.

One of only three women who can call herself an International Ice Hockey Federation Hall of Famer, James was in good company for 'Minor Hockey Talk'.

Sarah Howald is head coach of the under-22 Canadian women's national team, and has spent a decade behind the bench for the women's team at the University of Regina.

Our Game columnist and founder of Total Female Hockey Kim McCullough also took questions about the girls' game. A former NCAA player, McCullough now devotes her time to helping girls' hockey players get to the next level.

McCullough has trained, coached and consulted more than 1,500 players and 300 coaches.
