I found this interesting article on NHL.com and I hope that you all get the chance to read it. I really enjoy that some players are open about having a female coach one day because some may not want that. Female coaches are starting to appear more recently in football and basketball and they are trail blazing a path for other female coaches in other sports. Maybe some day we won't make a huge deal about female coaches and they will become normal alongside male coaches. I hope to see positive progression for women in sports in the present and future.

One century of this game and League is a wonderful milestone to celebrate. Let's hope to do this in the next century!
