Women’s Hockey Wednesday: Promoting the game

The first three links in our International Hockey section this week are about USA Hockey and the Canada - USA games and practices taking place this week in Pittsburgh. The first article is about Monique Lamoureux-Morando and Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson being the first Team USA players to take advantage of the maternity benefits negotiated in 2017 after the team threatened to boycott the 2017 World Championships. The benefits—continuance of their national team stipends, guaranteed spots at two national team camps post-partum and a monthly childcare stipend—seem quite good, especially in comparison to the lack of maternity leave support by many American employers.
