Rosenfeld with her Portrait at Canada's Sports Hall of Fame

Rosenfeld with her Portrait at Canada's Sports Hall of Fame
Ethel Berman, Bobbie's youngest sister, remembered one day when Rosenfeld was, "watching her hockey team heading for certain defeat." Rosenfeld tossed her crutches aside, suited up and headed out on the ice to score the winning goal. "That was Bobbie," Berman said.

When their family doctor read the newspapers he called Bobbie's mother, "to scold her for allowing Rosenfeld to play." Her mother was baffled because, true to form, "Bobbie had hidden the paper from her..."

Notes

1. Ethel Berman's story told in Beverley Smith, "Remembering the Courage of Bobbie Rosenfeld," Globe and Mail 23 May 1996.
