Women Of Teal Night

by Ann Frazier /

On Tuesday, the San Jose Sharks held their first Women of Teal Night of the season, a night celebrating the women in Sharks Territory. 

To kick off the day, Sharks broadcaster - and Olympic gold medalist - Kendall Coyne Schofield took over the team's Instagram Stories, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into the day of a broadcaster.

She also managed to get an assist at morning skate.

Players from a San Jose Jr. Sharks girls team were invited out to the ice to stand with the starting lineup for the Canadian and American national anthems.

As part of the Women Of Teal event, Kim Davis (Executive Vice President of Social Impact, Growth Initiatives, and Legislative Affairs for the NHL), Hannah Gordon (San Francisco 49ers Chief Administrative Officer), Kristi Yamaguchi (US Figure Skating Olympic Gold Medalist and founder of Always A Dream Foundation), and Annie Pankowski (US Women's National Ice Hockey Team) were invited as special guests to drop the puck and host a pregame panel.
