GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Arizona Coyotes have hired former Olympian Lyndsey Fry as a special adviser to team President and CEO Ahron Cohen.
The 26-year-old Fry, who grew up in Chandler, Arizona, will also be a brand ambassador for the NHL club.
Fry helped the U.S. women's hockey team win a silver medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. She also was part of the gold medal-winning team at the 2013 world championships.
Collegiately, she played four seasons at Harvard.
Cohen called Fry "an inspirational role model to young people" across Arizona.
Fry said she is excited to work with the Coyotes to advance a goal of growing hockey throughout Arizona.
In her new job, Fry will work with the Coyotes Hockey Development department to spearhead the growth of youth hockey and, particularly, women's hockey.
