COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Ten members who have played on the U.S. Women's National Team will compete in NHL All-Star weekend festivities in St. Louis, Mo., Friday, Jan. 24 beginning at 8 p.m. ET as part of the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills on NBCSN.
Kacey Bellamy (Westfield, Mass.), Alex Carpenter (North Reading, Mass.), Alex Cavallini (Delafield, Wis.), Kendall Coyne Schofield (Palos Heights, Ill.), Brianna Decker (Dousman, Wis.), Amanda Kessel (Madison, Wis.), Hilary Knight (Sun Valley, Idaho), Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson (Grand Forks, N.D.), Annie Pankowski (Laguna Hills, Calif.) and Lee Stecklein (Roseville, Minn.) will face a team comprised of top women's players from Canada as part of a 3-on-3 game during the event. The 3-on-3 game will consist of two 10-minute periods, with a running clock. Teams will switch ends after the first period.
