Best Social Highlight Star

How Does This Individual Represent “Excellence in Engagement”?

Dazzling the NHL All-Star Game's “Fastest Skater” competition, U.S. women’s hockey star Kendall Coyne Schofield gave the men’s players a run for their money. A last-minute replacement for the Colorado Avalanche’s Nathan MacKinnon, Coyne raised eyebrows online and in the arena as she sped around the ice in 14.346 seconds—only less than one second slower than the winning time. For her, the viral moment was defining in the sense that it shed a bigger light on professional women’s hockey less than a year after one of the hockey games of the century earned her an Olympic gold medal.
