Chicago Blackhawks Are Having A Ladies Night
The Chicago Blackhawks are having a ladies night, but not the kind you're thinking of. On March 8th, the Blackhawks host the St. Louis Blues at the United Center, and for the first time ever, the broadcast and production of the game will be handled by only women to coincide with International Women's Day.
Pat Foley and Eddie Olczyk will turn the play by play duties over to Kate Scott, U.S. Olympic gold medalist Kendall Coyne-Schofield will be between the benches, and AJ Mleczko, another gold medalist for the U.S. will serve as analyst. Even back in the studio, Kathryn Tappen will anchor the intermissions with three-time Canadian Olympic gold medalist Jen Botteril. Also, the producer, Rene Hatlelif, and director, Lisa Seltzer will lead game day production according to NBC Sports.
The Blackhawks have never shied away from pushing the envelope and trying new things. From their involvement with the Winter Classic to promoting the team and bringing them out from the shadows, add this up to another cool thing the organization is doing to promote the game to ALL fans and give girls out there a chance to see that they too can get involved in hockey, not just on the ice, but off it as well!
