||Blackhawks hire woman as player development coach
This article shared 812 times since Tue Nov 24, 2020
The Chicago Blackhawks hired U.S. women's national team captain Kendall Coyne Schofield as a player development coach and promoted Meghan Hunter, previously general manager Stan Bowman's executive assistant, to director of hockey administration and amateur scout, ESPN.com reported.
Coyne Schofield, 28, who is still an active player, has a dual role with the Blackhawks. She will also serve as a youth hockey growth specialist, continuing to lead her all-girls youth program, the Golden Coynes.
The news came just days after Kim Ng was named general manager of MLB's Miami Marlins, becoming the first female GM of a major men's professional sports team in North America.
The Blackhawks now have three women working in their hockey operations department, as Mary DeBartolo, a coordinator in hockey analytics, was hired last year.
