Meghan Duggan, a champion across women’s hockey, retires

In the midst of the U.S. women’s hockey national team fighting for better wages and equitable support, Meghan Duggan got on the phone with every player to explain what it was all about.

With the world championships on home ice weeks away and the stakes high, Duggan thought it was her duty as captain.

“When you think of a captain on your team and a leader on your team, you want someone that’s willing to do things that no one else is willing to do,” teammate Monique Lamoureux-Morando recalled.

Duggan did that on and off the ice, leading the U.S. to the 2018 Olympic gold medal and spearheading the wage boycott. A year earlier, that fight led to a new contract and a brighter spotlight on the sport.

“We were able to work through that and move through things together and be on the right side of history,” Duggan said
