Well, good for her!
As long as she can do the job she was hired for, gender shouldn't matter here at all.
And yes, brand new world we live in when pro hockey teams invest full time in positions not really looked at in years past.
Analytics guys have started to trickle in and have even become mainstays with some clubs, and now other positions like skating coaches....anything to get the edge over the competition!
Which the fans pay for through higher ticket prices.
Next up: a group of assistants for the skating coach! At least five or six per team... obviously! Pay them each a million per year to hold pylons, arrange pucks, and blow whistles. Yes!!!!
Sorry, I'll be more positive. (Ahem.) Congratulations! I am thrilled!
