If you saw Hilary Knight in a restaurant and weren’t aware of who she was, you probably wouldn’t have the slightest clue that she spends most of her time body checking people into walls on the ice. Why? Because she has this gorgeous, sweet smile that doesn’t scream “I could definitely injure you,” – but she totally could, which is part of what makes her so awesome.
Well, that and the eight gold medals she’s won over the past several years, one of which was in the 2018 Winter Olympics, when she scored the first goal for the team and won. The other seven were at the IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s Championships.
