Brian Boyle was intimidated following Hilary Knight in the NHL Skills Accuracy Competition and for good reason
NHL players weren’t the only hockey stars present during the 2018 All-Star Weekend. Numerous members of the United States Women’s Hockey Team made an appearance at the event, including Hilary Knight, one of the best forwards on Team USA.
Taking time out of their busy training schedule to participate in the event, Knight and two other Olympic teammates demonstrated the events that would take place in the Skills Competition.
28-year-old Knight is a two-time Olympic silver medalist, seven-time World Champion, and a staunch advocate for gender equality and positive representation of the female body, so it’s no wonder that Devils forward Brian Boyle was intimidated by her greatness.
