Brigette Lacquette now a scout for the Chicago Blackhawks

The first Indigenous woman to play for Canada’s Olympic Women’s Hockey Team was announced by the Chicago Blackhawks in July that Brigette would be among select members of the organization’s hockey operations and youth hockey departments to announce the club’s draft picks at the podium during this weekend’s National Hockey League Draft, as a pro-scout.

The Mallard, Manitoba and Cote First Nation, Saskatchewan native became the first First Nations Woman to play on Canada’s Olympic hockey team in 2018 in PyeongChang and helped her country win a silver medal. Lacquette made her IIHF Women’s World Championship debut in 2015, winning the first of two back-to-back silver medals with Canada. Additionally, Lacquette was named the 2017 Team Manitoba Top Female Athlete.

An alum of the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Lacquette has played on Canada’s National Senior Women’s Hockey team since 2015, while also accumulating extensive experience as a player evaluator through years of coaching.
