About Hilary Knight

Every league has the one legend who helps put their sport on the map. For women’s hockey, that person is Hilary Knight. Beyond being considered the best player on the planet, Hilary made an even bigger name for herself when she took to Twitter to announce the US Women’s National Hockey Team’s boycott of the 2017 IIHF Women's World Championship unless the team received pay and benefits equal to the US men’s team. The team not only won their battle with USA Hockey—they went on to defeat Canada to take gold at the tournament. As hockey leads her around the globe, Hilary makes sure keep 75K+ Instagram followers up on all her travels. Her achievements on and off the ice led to her inclusion in the Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2018.
