Playing careerEdit

As a child, her parents tried to sign her up for hockey and the Community Centre insisted she take figure skating.[2] She was able to play hockey the year after Justine Blainey won a court case allowing girls to play on boys' hockey in 1986.[3]

Ferrari began playing with the Brampton Thunder of the National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) in the 2004-2005 season. Her lifetime stats in the NWHL in 79 games include 10 goals, 36 assists and 76 penalty minutes. In the 2004-05 season, she recorded three goals and 22 assists in 34 games. She was part of an NWHL Central Division Champion.

Ferrari played defence for the Canadian women's team in the Winter Olympics in 2002 and 2006.[4] She has also won two gold medals with Canada at the Women's World Hockey Championships.[4] Ferrari was one of the final cuts for Team Canada leading up to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, BC.[5]

McGill MartletsEdit

On September 18, 2010, Ferrari, in her first-year with the Martlets, scored her first-ever CIS goal. It was on a 4-on-3 power play versus Wilfrid Laurier University.[6] On December 31, Ferrari was credited with the game-winner on the power-play at 5:49 of the first period in the final game of the Bisons Holiday Classic tournament at Max Bell Arena. McGill defeated the nationally ranked fifth overall Alberta Pandas by a 3-0 mark [7]
