Arizona Coyotes hire first full-time female coach in NHL history
The NBA and NFL have each welcomed their first full-time female coaches over the last two years, and on Wednesday NHL history was made by skating coach Dawn Braid, who became the first woman to land a full-time coaching job in the league with the Arizona Coyotes. Braid previously served as a "skating consultant" with the Leafs, Ducks, Sabres and Flames.
It's a proud day for our organization.
