Kendall Coyne Wins Gold As U.S. Women’s Hockey Team Beats Canada

February 22, 2018 5:42 pm

GANGNEUNG, SOUTH KOREA — Kendall Coyne — the pride of Palos Heights, IL — wore Olympic gold early Thursday morning as the U.S. women’s hockey team beat Canada in an improbable victory — the first for American women in 20 years.

The women’s gold-medal hockey win — 38 years to the day after the famous “Miracle on Ice” at Lake Placid — came in a 3-2 thriller against the U.S. team’s greatest rival and ended Canada’s bid for a fifth straight gold. This win is one for the history books, too.

After the game, Coyne celebrated with her teammates, skating across the ice with fellow forward Hilary Knight while holding an American flag overhead.

My family and I have worked with Kevin Magnuson and KO sports since 2006 after Kevin saw me play in the USHL Fall Classic for Waterloo. Kevin has helped guide me through the USHL, NCAA and NHL and all the good and bad that comes with each League. His experience as a former practicing attorney was really helpful in negotiating all three of my NHL contracts. Kevin and KO Sports were especially prepared for the salary arbitration hearing we had in 2015 with Nashville that ended with me eventually earning an awesome, life changing 5-year deal.
