Hilary Knight has earned numerous accolades and was named MVP at both the 2015 and 2016 IIHF Women's World Championships. She is one of the most dynamic players in women's ice hockey and has been a member of the U.S. women's national team since she was 17 years old (2006). She is a two-time Olympic silver medalist (2010, 2014) and has aided Team USA to gold medals at seven IIHF Women's World Championships (2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017), while also adding two silvers (2007, 2012). She has also participated in 10 Four Nations Cups, winning five of those events (2008, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016). At the 2017 world championships, she netted the gold-medal-winning goal in overtime of the championship game against Canada. She was also a dominant collegiate player for the University of Wisconsin, where she garnered All-America honors, was twice named a top-10 finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award and won two NCAA Division I titles. Should she make her third U.S. Olympic Team, Knight will try to help Team USA to the gold medal, which would mark the first Olympic gold for the U.S. since 1998.
