Chicago Wolves skating and skills coach, Kenny McCudden, who has served in the same role for the United States Women’s hockey team for the last two-and-a-half years, will continue to aid the team’s pursuit of the gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. McCudden, who departs on Thursday morning stated, “I’m there to do a job. I’m honored. I’m privileged. It took a lot of hard work to get to this point, to be part of the program and to keep moving on within the program.” McCudden’s primary role during the Olympics will be as the team’s advance scout. He will provide reports on every other team for USA coach, Katey Stone and the Olympians.
“My daydream is watching the women celebrate, knowing what they’ve gone through. If they have a chance to wrap this up and win a gold, I will be so proud to watch them. And on that stage? Holy Cow! That’s my big dream: to have them have their dream come true.”
