The Professional Women’s Hockey Player Association just played the first pro women’s hockey game ever at Madison Square Garden last week — and Meghan Duggan, who won a gold medal in 2018 and seven IIHF Women’s World Championships with USA Hockey, joins the show to help introduce the PWHPA and discuss the state of women’s hockey in America. You can watch another PWHPA game between Team Minnesota and Team New Hampshire on March 6 at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
