After leading Canada to a gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, Shannon Szabados took on a more imposing challenge.
The goalie for Canada's gold medalist women's Olympic hockey team made her debut in the men's Southern Professional Hockey League.
A Canadian Olympian is expected to become the first woman to play in a game in the Southern Professional Hockey League when she takes the ice during a Georgia game.
Canadian women's goalie Shannon Szabados has agreed to a contract with the Columbus Cottonmouths of the Southern Professional Hockey League.
Olympic champion women's goalie Shannon Szabados took the ice with the Edmonton Oilers at practice Wednesday.
The puck skittered the length of the ice on its way toward the empty Canadian net before clanging off the post and stopping in front of the crease.
Marie-Philip Poulin scored twice for the second straight Olympic gold medal game and Canada beat the United States 3-2 in overtime on Thursday for its fourth consecutive title.
Not once in the five Olympics since women's hockey was added to the Winter Games has Canada failed to reach the final.
"When I got home from Sochi, I thought I'd be hanging my stuff up for the summer, but definitely excited to get over there," Szabados told The Canadian Press.
"I haven't been in the gym, I haven't been on the ice, I haven't been sleeping well," Szabados said.
