Welcome to the NHL, Hayley!
The Toronto Maple Leafs had added a 5-time Olympic medalist to their coaching squad.

The Leafs hired Hayley Wickenheiser as their Assistant Director of Player Personnel.
It’s not like she doesn’t have the pedigree.
Besides her 5 Olympic medals (4 Gold, 1 Silver), Wickenheiser has won 11 at the World Championship as well.
The weight of the news wasn’t lost on Twitter, as it continues the trend of women earning high-profile jobs in the sporting world!
Imagine you're a young girl who plays hockey. You watch the Leafs and there, in the executive box, is Hayley Wickenheiser looking down with the others. Man, it's just huge. It Really is.
