Kendall Coyne Schofield to join San Jose Sharks broadcast team as color commentator for select games
In addition to being the first-ever woman to compete in the NHL All-Star skills competition, Olympic gold medallist, five-time IIHF Worlds Championships gold medalist, and Isobel Cup champion in the NWHL, Kendall Coyne Schofield can now add San Jose Sharks color commentator to her laundry list of accomplishments.
“I’ve always felt a part of the San Jose family since I left that moment,” Coyne Schofield told NBC Sports, referencing her time at the 2019 NHL All-Star weekend. “And everyone’s been so supportive, and the outreach from the San Jose community just to me as a hockey player has been unbelievable. So, I’m really excited to transition that into the broadcasting realm.”
