Cassie Campbell

Cassie Campbell-Pascall (born November 22, 1973) is a Canadian former ice hockey player and broadcaster for Sportsnet. Born in Richmond Hill, Ontario, she was the captain of the Canadian ice hockey team during the 2002 Winter Olympics and led the team to a gold medal. The left winger took on the role of captain again in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, and again successfully led her team to the Gold Medal with a 4 – 1 win over Sweden.

Cassie was also captain of the Calgary Oval X-Treme, a team in the Western Women's Hockey League. Campbell has also played for the Toronto Aeros and the Mississauga Chiefs.

She has done modeling, and hosted women's hockey segments on TSN's hockey broadcasts. She attended high school at North Park Secondary School and is an alumna of the University of Guelph, in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Her charity work among communities in the greater Toronto area has been well received, and she is known as a great role model and humanitarian.

During the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics, Campbell provided colour commentary for women's hockey. She was inducted into the Ontario Sports Hall of Fame in 2012.[1]

The Cassie Campbell Community Centre in Brampton, Ontario is named in her honour.

Retirement from hockey

Cassie Campbell retired from competitive hockey on August 30, 2006.[2] She then joined Hockey Night in Canada as a rinkside reporter, becoming (on October 14, 2006) the first woman to do colour commentary on a Hockey Night in Canada broadcast.[3] She filled in when Harry Neale was snowed in at his home in Buffalo.[4] She launched her own website in the spring of 2008, and is a spokesperson for Scotiabank. She appears at corporate events for Scotiabank and contributed to a blog on the Scotiahockeyclub website.[5]

On November 22, 2009, Campbell ran a leg in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch relay, through the town of Cavendish, Prince Edward Island.[6]

On November 26, 2013, Rogers Communications had secured a $5.2 billion deal with the National Hockey League for 12 years. Campbell then joined Sportsnet, in addition to her Hockey Night in Canada role, to participate in the NHL coverage.


She also works as a motivational speaker for Speakers Spotlight, The Lavin Agency and The Sweeney Agency. Campbell is also the author of a book which was released in October 2007. The book is titled H.E.A.R.T, a book co-written with Lorna Schultz Nicholson. This book was published by Fenn with an ISBN number of 1-551-68315-6.

Personal life

Campbell was born in Richmond Hill, Ontario and raised in Brampton, Ontario.

Campbell is married to Brad Pascall, an assistant general manager of the NHL's Calgary Flames.[7] In 2007, she was inducted into the Canada Sports Hall of Fame, along other luminaries such as Doug Flutie. The June 2007 issue of Chatelaine magazine featured Campbell on its cover. This was the second time that she has graced the cover.

Campbell is related to Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables.[8] Campbell gave birth to her first child, Brooke Violet, on November 17, 2010, with husband Brad Pascall.[9][10] According to Campbell, "We conceived at the Olympics, which was kind of crazy, because we barely saw each other. It's an Olympic baby."

On June 25, 2012, Campbell received the Order of Hockey in Canada.[12]
