(Newark) New Jersey Devils handed over the new Director of Player Development to Meghan Duggan on Wednesday.
“We’re really excited about this hiring,” said General Manager Tom Fitzgerald. We think Megan would be perfect for the role.
“Her eloquent record as a teammate, leader and captain will be of great benefit to the organization, as will her entrepreneurial spirit. His attention to detail and creative thinking will help our players realize their potential.”
Duggan will work with GM assistant Dan MacKinnon, especially reporting on the progress of hockey players.
Dogan, 33, retired from the Boston area last October, after huge success in the United States and internationally.
She won eight golds with the Americans, seven at the World Championships and one in the Olympics (PyeongChang, in 2018).
Duggan, a former NCAA Badger, won the Patty Kazmaier Cup, which is awarded to the best college footballer on US soil.
After the University of Wisconsin, she played with Boston and Buffalo, in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League, as well as in the Women’s National Hockey League.
