Kachina Docu-Series presented by Banner Physical Therapy
A new, exclusive, five-part docu-series highlighting the history, growth, and prominence of girls' hockey in Arizona debuted on Thursday, March 4, 2021.
The series is titled "Kachinas," named after the Coyotes' official youth girls hockey association.
Featured to run throughout Gender Equality Month, one episode will debut each Thursday in March. A final, bonus episode will complete the series April 1. Each episode will be featured on the Coyotes' official YouTube channel.
The Coyotes, along with the NHL, will celebrate Gender Equality Month throughout the month of March, amplifying women who are driving the sport of hockey.
"It was refreshing to walk into the front office when I first got here and see female executives, see women working in all areas of the organization," Fry said. "That was actually really eye opening for me, to go from a world where I was so used to being the only woman or only girl, to then walking into a professional side of hockey that I hadn't really known."
Female representation in the Coyotes' front office is not just an idea. It is a reality.
The Coyotes have 33 full-time female employees. The number rises to 61 when the count includes part-time personnel.
On International Women's Day, Arizona Coyotes President and CEO Xavier Gutierrez joined the FOX Sports Arizona broadcast to talk about the importance of women in hockey. As part of the celebration of International Women's Day, Coyotes' Director of External Engagement and former gold medalist Lyndsey Fry joined the broadcast team as a color analyst. Fry was alongside play-by-play announcer Matt McConnell and former Coyote forward Tyson Nash as Arizona defeated the Colorado Avalanche 3-2.
