The IIHF Women's World Hockey Championship is the premier international tournament in Women's ice hockey. It is governed by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). The official world competition was first held in 1990. With the inception of women's hockey in the Winter Olympics in 1998, the tournament is not held in Olympic years.

Collegiate biography

Botterill attended Harvard University from 1998-2003 where she played hockey from 1998 to 2003. She holds the NCAA career scoring record (149 goals, 170 assists, 319 points). Botterill's 1st year at Harvard was not played in NCAA, but in an alternate league, so her record is not official. Despite this, she is the leading scorer in Harvard University history. She scored at least one point in 106 of her 107 career NCAA games (including a streak of 80 consecutive games). She was the first player to win the Patty Kazmaier Award twice as the top player in NCAA women's hockey.

Pro hockey biography

Currently, Botterill plays for the Mississauga Chiefs of the Canadian Women's Hockey League. In 2007-08, she won the Angela James Bowl after winning the league scoring title with 61 points.[2] She was voted the CWHL Top Forward and a CWHL Central All-Star; she won CWHL Top Scorer of the Month honours in February.
