Kendall Coyne Schofield’s resume was already a long one. She won silver with the USA women’s hockey team at the 2014 Olympics and then brought home the gold in 2018. Tack on six world championship medals–five gold, one silver–and you’ve got one of the best hockey players in the game.
Now Coyne Schofield can add another line item to that list: she is the first woman to compete in an NHL All-Star skills competition.
She and three other female Olympians were slated to demonstrate the various skills: Coyne Schofield’s USA teammate Brianna Decker and Canada’s Renata Fast and Rebecca Johnston.
Coyne Schofield was called into action when the Colorado Avalanche’s Nathan MacKinnon had to withdraw due to a bruised foot.
She finished seventh with a time of 14.346 seconds — one second behind Connor McDavid who won with a time of 13.378.
