Just another big step forward for Hayley Wickenheiser, the greatest female hockey player in history. Yesterday The Toronto Maple Leafs hired her as Assistant Director Of Player Development. In what might appear to be an old boys club (The NHL), Kyle Dubas - the 32 year old GM of The Leafs, proved otherwise. He was looking for the right person for the job, and Hayley, ever a trailblazer, was the one.

And why not....she was the first woman to play full-time professional hockey in a position other than goalie.

Wickenheiser was a member of Canada women's national ice hockey team for 23 years, from 1994 until announcing her retirement on January 13, 2017, and is the team's career points leader with 168 goals and 211 assists in 276 games. She represented Canada at the Winter Olympics five times, capturing four gold and one silver medal and twice being named tournament MVP, and one time at the Summer Olympics in softball.

On February 20, 2014, Wickenheiser was elected to the International Olympic Committee's Athletes' Commission.

And as if not busy enough, among other activities, she is currently studying to be a Doctor, which she will continue to do in her new position with Toronto.

There is little this person can not do. She is an inspiration for men and women, and sets the bar extremely high when it comes to making things happen!
