The Chicago Blackhawks on Monday hired Kendall Coyne Schofield as a player development coach, making her the first woman to hold that position in the organization’s 94-year history.
芝加哥黑鹰队周一聘请肯德尔·科恩·斯科菲尔德(Kendall Coyne Schofield)担任球员发展教练，这使她成为该组织94年历史上第一位担任这一职位的女性。
Coyne Schofield, 28, will work with the coaching staff of Chicagos top minor league affiliate in Rockford, Illinois, and serve as youth hockey growth specialist. The former U.S women’s national team forward previously held broadcasting jobs with NBC Sports and the San Jose Sharks.
Chicago also added former NHL forward Erik Condra as player development coach, hired Juan Gonzalez from USA Hockey to be a minor league strength and conditioning coach and promoted Meghan Hunter to director of hockey administration and amateur scout.

Adding talented people with diverse and multifaceted backgrounds like Kendall, Erik and Juan enhances our operations as we assess the changing landscape of hockey at all levels and continue to build and maintain a system of elite hockey,” general manager Stan Bowman said in a statement. “Each of these individuals brings unique experience to their position.”
总经理斯坦·鲍曼(Stan Bowman)在一份声明中表示：“加入肯德尔、埃里克和胡安等具有不同和多方面背景的有才华的人，可以增强我们的运营，因为我们正在评估各级曲棍球不断变化的格局，并继续建立和维护精英曲棍球体系，”总经理斯坦·鲍曼(Stan Bowman)在一份声明中表示。“这些人中的每一个都给他们的职位带来了独特的经验。”
Coyne Schofield joins a slowly growing list of women working in hockey operations for an NHL team. Retired Canadian star Hayley Wickenheiser is assistant director of player development for the Toronto Maple Leafs, while the expansion Seattle Kraken hired Hall of Famer Cammi Granato as a pro scout and Alexandra Mandrycky as director of hockey strategy and research.
科恩·斯科菲尔德(Coyne Schofield)加入了为一支NHL球队从事曲棍球运营的女性名单，这一名单正在缓慢增长。加拿大退役球星海莉·维肯海泽(Hayley Wickenheiser)是多伦多枫叶队(Toronto Maple Leafs)球员发展的助理总监，而扩建的西雅图克拉肯(Seattle Kraken)聘请了名人堂成员卡米·格拉纳托(Cammi Granato)担任职业球探，亚历山德拉·曼德里奇(Alexandra Mandrycky)担任曲棍球战略和研究总监。
Condra will join Coyne Schofield working with the Rockford IceHogs after playing eight seasons in the NHL. Gonzalez was most recently a strength and conditioning adviser for USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program. Hunter had been senior executive assistant to Bowman before her promotion.
