HOCKEY NEWS:
Meghan Duggan, a champ throughout females’s hockey, retires

In the middle of the U.S. females’s hockey nationwide group defending much better incomes and fair assistance, Meghan Duggan got on the phone with every gamer to describe what it was everything about.

With the world champions on house ice weeks away and the stakes high, Duggan felt it was her responsibility as captain.

“When you think of a captain on your team and a leader on your team, you want someone that’s willing to do things that no one else is willing to do,” colleague Monique Lamoureux-Morando remembered.

Duggan did that on and off the ice, leading the U.S. to the 2018 Olympic gold medal and leading the wage boycott. A year previously that caused a brand-new agreement and a brighter spotlight on the sport.

She revealed her retirement Tuesday after 11 years with the nationwide group. She was the very first American males’s or females’s gamer to win 7 successive world champion gold medals, 2 silver medals at the Olympics and one at worlds and the title in South Korea in her last worldwide competition.

“I am incredibly thankful and humbled by the opportunities I’ve had throughout my hockey career,” Duggan stated. “At the core of those experiences are people; my family, teammates, coaches, support staff, organizations, fans, and the next generation of players: you have all changed my life.”

Duggan altered theirs.

Her tradition off the ice will be specified by her function in the 2017 boycott over gamer payment, particularly in non-Olympic years. Duggan was a main figure in settlements with U.S.A. Hockey and was a spokesperson for the group while they were continuous prior to a four-year offer was reached.

“She fights for our sport the way she fought on the ice to win a game,” stated Canadian protector Renata Quick, who had Duggan as an assistant coach at Clarkson University and bet her at the Olympics. “She was just so competitive in everything she did, and she always had a great head on her shoulder that knew the direction of where our sport needed to go.”

With Duggan using the captain’s “C” the U.S. won the worlds after their agreement triumph. Then she turned her attention to the Olympic gold medal that had actually avoided the U.S. considering that 1998.

At an occasion in the fall of 2017 at Nike’s school in Beaverton, Oregon, Duggan took massive notes when Hockey Hall of Famer and ‘98 gold medalist Cammi Granato was attending to the group. Duggan and Granato had numerous discussions that year about getting a more fair agreement and attempting to win at the Olympics.

“The gist of it was, ‘How do we win this gold medal?’” Granato stated. “Like, ‘We are not going to this Olympic and coming away without a gold – how do we do it?’”

Duggan taped 75 points (45 objectives, 30 helps) in 137 video games in a U.S. uniform and assisted change the culture after a gut-wrenching overtime loss to Canada in the gold-medal video game at the 2014 Sochi Games.

“I think that span from 2014 to 2018 was probably the most crucial years for our program,” long time colleague and pal Kacey Bellamy stated. “Meghan had such a hand in the way she led our team and the change in culture that we had to do in order to be successful, and that’s one of the main reasons why we won gold in 2018.”

Duggan was an establishing member of the Specialist Women’s Hockey Players Association in 2019. The objective was to develop one sustainable professional league. She might continue playing a vital function in defending more prominence for her sport.

“She’ll continue to be a part of that, obviously not as a player, but I think in other ways,” stated Hockey Hall of Famer Jayna Hefford, who bet Duggan with Canada and now works as an executive with the PWHPA. “We’re lucky to have her as a voice.”

Duggan installed 238 points in 159 video games over 4 seasons while winning 3 championship games at the University of Wisconsin. She had 19 points in 26 video games over 4 in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League and 36 more throughout 2 in the National Women’s Hockey League.

“It goes just to her work ethic on the ice – hardest worker I know,” stated Brianna Decker, who had fun with Duggan in college, the CWHL, NWHL and on the nationwide group. “She always led by example on the ice but off the ice, too, every little detail of the game.”

Due to the fact that of her achievements from the conference room to the locker space and on the ice, Duggan will likely quickly belong of a minimum of the U.S. Hockey and International Ice Hockey Federation Halls of Popularity. She won’t need to wait long.

“Not many athletes get to end their career on top,” colleague Kendall Coyne Schofield stated. “Whatever the criteria is for the the waiting period, she’ll be there. So give it the grace period and we’ll definitely see her in those Hall of Fames.”
