Angela Frautschi (born 5 June 1987) is a Swiss female ice hockey player. She is a member of the Switzerland women's national ice hockey team. She played in the 2006 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics. She also competed for ZSC Lions Zurich in the Leistungsklasse A (the top women's ice hockey league in Switzerland). In 2014 Frautschi accompanied the Swiss women's Ice Hockey Team to Sochi for the Winter Olympics. Largely thought to have an outside chance at best to win a medal, Switzerland shocked Sweden in a remarkable 4-3 come from behind victory in the Bronze Medal Match, giving both Frautschi and her Swiss teammates their first ever Olympic Medal in Women's Ice Hockey History, and the countries first medal in Ice Hockey since the men won Bronze at home way back in 1948 at St. Moritz, Switzerland.
