Angela Ruggiero Speaker

In her senior year at Harvard University, Ruggiero won the 2004 Patty Kazmaier Award as the top player in U.S. women’s collegiate hockey. She graduated from Harvard cum laude in 2004 with a degree in government. Ruggiero made several U.S. professional hockey “firsts” on January 28, 2005, when she played for the Tulsa Oilers in a Central Hockey League game against the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees. She was the first woman to actively play in a regular season professional hockey game in the United States at a position other than goalie. In addition, since her brother Bill Ruggiero also played for the Oilers, So the list of possible Angela Ruggiero speaker topics extends well beyond just the normal sports stories. An Angela Ruggiero speaker appearance will enhance any event.

In May 2006, Ruggiero was selected from a field of twelve Olympians to be a candidate on the sixth season of NBC’s business-themed reality game show The Apprentice. The season debuted in January 2007. During Ruggiero’s time on the show, many references were made to her Olympic and hockey experience. She was eliminated on the season’s tenth episode, airing on March 25, 2007. Angela Ruggiero appearance at your event or function is sure to be a hit with sports fans and non-sports fans alike. PGS can help secure an Angela Ruggiero appearance.

Ruggiero is the author of a memoir, Breaking the Ice: My Journey to Olympic Hockey, the Ivy League & Beyond, published by Drummond Publishing Group in 2005. The book details her hockey career, including her experiences with misconceptions about women’s hockey and the challenges of being a female player in a male-dominated sport. No matter what product or service you offer an Angela Ruggiero endorsement is sure to help.
