Catherine Michelle "Cammi" Granato (born March 25, 1971 in Downers Grove, Illinois) is a retired American female ice hockey player.

Granato was the captain of the U.S. women's hockey team that won a gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics. She is the younger sister of former NHL player and former Colorado Avalanche head coach Tony Granato, and a graduate of Providence College. Granato played hockey for Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, until CIAU added more restrictive rules on non-Canadians.

Granato lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with her husband, former NHL star Ray Ferraro. They have two sons: Riley, born in December 2006, and Reese, born in December 2009.[1] She is stepmother to Ferraro's sons from his first marriage, Matt and Landon.

Granato has played in every world championship for the U.S. She is also a rinkside reporter for NBC's NHL coverage and a color commentator for NBC's coverage of womens' ice hockey at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. She was named USA Women's Player of the Year in 1996. She was dropped from the US National team unexpectedly before the 2006 Olympics in Turin, Italy, after being a part of the program since its inaugural season. Granato provided support for special needs children by starting Golden Dreams for Children Foundation. She also runs an annual hockey camp during the summer in Chicago for young girls.

In May 2008, Granato was inducted into the International Ice Hockey Hall of fame with two other women's hockey players (Geraldine Heaney, Angela James)- the first women to be given such an honor.[2] On September 18, 2007, Granato was announced one of the four recipients of the 2007 Lester Patrick Trophy. She is a partner in BelaHockey, a company that creates hockey accessories for girls.[3]

On August 12, 2008, it was announced that Granato would be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of fame, the first woman to be in the Hall. The induction ceremony took place on October 10, 2008, at the University of Denver. [4]
