In 2018, U.S. players also demonstrated skills competition events. After the Canadian Women's Hockey League folded previous year, more than 200 players formed the Professional Women's Hockey Players' Association and announced that they would be boycotting playing in North America until a single league received equitable and sustainable support. The two teams were at Cranberry earlier this season for a joint training camp at Complex Lemieux, and both sides explained how it was "never just an exhibition " when the US and Canada meet.

"Whenever the United States and Canada meet, you can expect the best of each team", said the goalkeeper. "These are the games that we get up for".

Last year, it was Kendall Coyne Schofield that dropped the jaws of the hockey universe when she finished the fastest skater event.

It was where American forward Kendall Coyne Schofield made headlines by becoming the first woman to participate in the skills competition.

All of the women selected will be part of the Professional Women's Hockey Players Association. While it didn't officially count in the standings, Hilary Knight's time of 11.64 seconds in the accuracy shooting event would have ranked third, posting a better time than Sidney Crosby, Anze Kopitar, James Neal, Blake Wheeler, Brad Marchand, and Steven Stamkos.

Meghan Markle disappoints Kate Middleton yet again with her decision?
At the time, the royal mom of three said, "I think William might be slightly worried" about the prospect of a fourth child. After meeting Ali, the duke pointed out a photo of their "little Lottie", when in fact, the photo was of him as a baby.

FYI, @HilaryKnight can snipe.

The women's game will happen during the January 24-25 weekend that showcases the top players in the National Hockey League, according to three people with direct knowledge of the plans who discussed them Monday with the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the National Hockey League isn't set to reveal its plans until later this week. Tristan Jarry and Kris Letang will be there representing the Penguins, and I'll be there with our site's coverage.

Women's hockey is about to get some serious shine at the NHL All-Star Game. The all-star game, featuring a series of three-on-three games, will be played January 25, a day after the annual skills competition. The day follows the format of a three-on-four tournament, with skill competitions taking place between rounds.

Two years ago, the league invited members of the US women's national team to demonstrate drills during the skills events. Wheeling captain Cam Brown will represent the Nailers at the event.
