Hilary Knight is a professional hockey player, Olympic Silver Medalist, MVP of the Canadian Women’s Professional hockey league, four-time World Champion and three-time All American in the sport of women’s hockey.

 

Hilary grew up in a skiing household with parents who never had ice skated. She was on skis at the age of two and skiing ran in her family. Her cousin Chip Knight was a 3 time Olympic Skier. Her mom, Cynthia, got the idea of Hilary playing hockey from her paddle tennis partner, whose husband suggested it and helped teach them how to skate.

 

When Hilary was five-years-old her family made the move from California to Chicago, where she truly started playing the sport. Hilary has three younger brothers who all play hockey and have helped her in perfecting her skills. “I always wanted to be better than my younger brothers,” Knight said. She and her brothers later taught their parents how to skate when Hilary was in high school, and her mom quickly took to the sport. She even joined a women’s league.

 

When it came time to choose a college, Knight had her pick – nearly everyone was recruiting her. Her parents wanted her to attend an Ivy League school, but suggested she visit Wisconsin. After visiting Wisconsin Hilary decided that if she was going to play in college, she wanted to play for a great coach on a great team, where she could learn and prepare to make the 2010 US Olympic team.

 

Hilary appeared in a NCAA National Championship Final in all 4 of her years as a Badger. As a sophomore, Hilary led the Nation with 45 goals and went on to win a National Championship with the Badgers. In her senior season, Hilary captained the Badgers to the National Championship Game, the WCHA title and set multiple new records in Women’s Hockey. Hilary set the all time record for goals scored surpassing her coach’s previous record which has stood for 30+ years. In her junior season (2010-2011) the Badgers won the NCAA championship and Hilary was named co MVP of the Championship. In her sophomore season (2008-09), Knight and Wisconsin captured the NCAA title as well, one year after losing in the final game. She led the NCAA last season with 45 goals, 43 assists, 83 points and 16 power-play goals in 39 games.

 

In 2010, Hilary Knight made her Olympic debut at age 20 in Vancouver as the youngest member of the US team where the team went on to take a Silver Medal.

 

In 2012, Hilary was drafted first overall to the Boston Blades in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. In her rookie season she led the Boston Blades in goals and was named MVP of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League.

 

Hilary is always looking for ways to change the world of hockey as women know it. Next up on her list, the 2014 Sochi Olympics Games in Sochi, Russia.

It is great to see awareness spread/raised by the viral #ALS #icebucketchallenge videos. When my grandfather was diagnosed with ALS I couldn't fathom how such a healthy and active man could be imprisoned in his own body. What was this disease? He was held captive; his muscles began to deteriorate and voluntary movements/ functions that seem second nature soon became lofty goals. It was heartbreaking to see his progression through early to late stages of ALS. Until recently, this disease was far too small and seemed a bit abstract for people to band together and raise a significant amount of awareness. I encourage everyone to donate and participate (as best you can) in raising funds and spreading awareness to #strikeoutALS I was recently coaching a hockey Camp up in Lake Placid, NY where the campers were persistent in nominating me for the challenge and dumping the ice bucket...don't know if this counts?
