Anne Schleper to skate with Tampa Bay Lightning
Sochi silver medalist Anne Schleper will become the third Olympic women’s hockey player to train with an NHL team since the Winter Games when she takes part in the Tampa Bay Lightning’s morning skate Monday.
Schleper, 24, scored one goal in her first Olympics as the U.S. won a second straight silver medal behind Canada in February.
Schleper’s teammate, Hilary Knight, practiced with the Anaheim Ducks on Oct. 3 and said she hopes to one day play in an NHL preseason game.
Canadian Olympic goalie Shannon Szabados practiced with the Edmonton Oilers on March 5.
Szabados and Finland Olympic goalie Noora Raty play in men’s leagues.
