Just curious....have no idea...coming from the other side of the world
shannon szabados has played in the AJHL for hte past few seasons and has been one of the better goalies in that league while doing so. She tried out in Tri-Cities of the WHL a few years ago as well.

She's really the only female I know that has played 'that high' in Canadian hockey on a mens team...other than Manon Reheume back in the day with Tampa and in the IHL etc...

as far as the highest level females play in north america...I'd say it really depends. I've played against AAA midget teams back when I was young...so....8/9 years ago....and there were a couple females playing back then...so it depends
