When Nancy Burggraf whistled, players skated to attention. Big players. Players with face masks and hockey sticks.

She has been called a hockey “guru” and “icon” by USA Today and was the first woman nominated to the United States Hockey Hall of Fame. During five decades she touched the lives of more than 40,000 hockey players through her unique skating skills clinics. She taught some of the best in the National Hockey League and was able to meet and connect with her players on a personal level.

Power & Stride is the inspiring story of a woman from Roseau, Minnesota, who succeeded in a male-dominated world and changed the game of hockey forever. Those who knew Nancy treasure her for what she taught them, and they continue to pass on her legacy.
