Tessa Nicholson said: “It’s been a great weekend for women’s hockey, especially in Pittsburgh where the sport is definitely growing, so it’s been exciting to have all this talent available here.
After the clinic, the girls stayed around to meet their hockey heroes, take pictures and get autographs.
Then on Saturday afternoon, the United States and Canada went head-to-head in a “Rematch,” a rematch of the gold medal game from the Winter Olympics.
