Hall of Fame

Kelly Breedon Elliot
2012 - Athlete - Stratford, ON

Nomination Criteria Description:

Kelly is one of the most complete and versatile female player in the game. She played all positions as the needs of her team required; and played them all equally at a high level of play. She played the forward and defense positions; with her role depending on the strength of their opposition. Whether at forward or defense she frequently led her team and the event in scoring points. She was called upon to play defense with a strong defensive strategy against strong teams to limit scoring chances by the opposition, and taking the game to overtime if necessary.

She had not only great talent with extraordinary leadership qualities but unmatched intelligence when it came to analyzing both her own team and their opposition. Many of their games went into overtime where Kelly’s role in the previous 4 on 4 overtime was clearly demonstrated. She was not only the “quarterback” of the overtime, but importantly the last player back to protect her net. During the 1995 Nationals, she logged all 38 minutes of overtime in their team’s win; and that particular game had Kelly make numerous break away stops in the overtime.
During Provincials only one goalie on her Satellites team was able to attend; and she was ejected late in a game and suspended for the next game. Kelly stepped in to finish that game in goal, and also played goal in the next game to lead her team to wins to advance further in the Provincials. Kelly was also called upon to stop a penalty shot during a McMillan’s game at the Nationals. The coaches decided to switch their goalie and substitute with not the back-up goalie but Kelly who of course stopped the shot. That is versatility at the best!

Kelly competed at 15 National Championships with Barrie Satellites and McMillan Sand and Gravel Ladies Elite team from 1991 through to 2005, with her teams finishing on the Championship side 13 times, and captured three (3) Gold Medals; two (2) Silver Medals; and seven (7) Bronze Medals. Kelly was the recipient of multiple All-Star Awards and MVP Awards through her illustrious career. She was the Female Tournament MVP Player at the Nationals in 1995.

Kelly Breedon-Elliott was inducted into the Ontario Broomball Hall of Fame in 2003.
