Kendall Coyne Schofield was announced along with the hiring of Juan Gonzalez and Erik Condra today for the Blackhawks player development staff.
“Adding talented people with diverse and multi-faceted backgrounds like Kendall, Erik and Juan enhances our operations as we assess the changing landscape of hockey at all levels and continue to build and maintain a system of elite hockey,” Chicago Blackhawks Senior Vice President and General Manager Stan Bowman said in a release. “Each of these individuals brings unique experience to their position, and we are excited to welcome them to the Blackhawks family.”

Kendall Coyne Schofield made history with the Team USA Women’s hockey team when they won the gold medal in the 2018 Olympics. She is one of the fastest skaters in the world.
This is great news for the NHL, and for the Chicago Blackhawks. We need more women in sports, and Coyne Schofield is certainly qualified. Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane welcomed Coyne Schofield aboard.

As a Blackhawks fan, this might be the best hire Stan Bowman has made in years. The team has been trending downward for many years and a series of bad moves culminated in the firing of legendary head coach Joel Quenneville in favor of Jeremy Colliton. Colliton has been nothing short of a failure in his first two years. His days with the organization could be limited.
Who knows? Maybe Kendall Coyne Schofield can take over and become the first female head coach in men’s professional sports.
