It’s easy to get into tough sports when you grow up in a family with three brothers. Because there were no female team sports at her previous school, Hilary Knight was forced to play with the boys. Nothing seemed out of the norm to her as she was used to being pushed and shoved by her non-nonsense brothers.
Hilary is one of the most decorated female ice hockey players in history. She has competed in three Olympic Games, representing the United States in 2010, 2014, and 2018. During that time, she had received one gold and two silver medals. She’s also a great leader, having assisted Boston Pride in winning the Isobel Cup in 2016.
