The Buffalo Bills made NFL history this week hiring Kathryn Smith as the league’s first full-time female assistant coach. Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano believes the same thing will happen in the NHL soon.

“Absolutely,” Giordano told the Calgary Herald. “With the way women have progressed in sports over the years, I think it’s just a matter of time. Teams already have women employed by their organizations in different jobs. It’ll be in the near future when they’re behind the bench or in the press box coaching.

“I’d be open to it, I know that for sure.”

TORONTO -- Julie Chu has a dream that one day the Canadian Women's Hockey League will provide female hockey players the ability to earn a decent living playing professionally.

"We dream of having thousands of fans at all our games," Chu said. "We dream of having a league where players are paid to the extent where it could be their full-time job. We're still a ways off from that point, we know, but for us it's having a league that is sustainable and having a league that allows the players to compete, to play and train."

Chu participated in the second annual CWHL All-Star Game at Air Canada Centre on Saturday. Team Black won 5-1 against Team White.
