The Washington Capitals have hired the first female video coach in National Hockey League history. The team named Emily Engel-Natzke to the position. Engel-Natzke came from the Hershey Bears, where she was the first woman to be a full-time member of an American Hockey League coaching staff. She’s now the first woman to be a full-time member of an NHL coaching staff. Engel-Natzke set the goal of reaching the NHL when she worked as video coach for men’s and women’s hockey programs at the University of Wisconsin. The hire of the 31-year-old by the Capitals is the latest of several hires and promotions of women around the league.
