SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) - Olympic gold medalist Monique Lamoureux-Morando will make her debut as an NHL Network studio analyst on Friday.

The network announced Wednesday she will join Kevin Weekes and Tony Luftman on “NHL Tonight.” The three-time Olympian scored the tying goal against Canada to help the U.S. team capture the gold medal last month in South Korea. Twin sister Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson scored the game-winning goal in the overtime shootout. Both recently discussed the gold-medal effort in studio at the NHL Network.

Monique Lamoureux-Morando says she’s “looking forward to sharing my perspective and passion for the game with hockey fans around the world.” She has been a color commentator for North Dakota women’s games and the under-18 World Championships.

She played professional hockey for the Minnesota Whitecaps from 2015-17 and the Boston Blades of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League from 2014-15.
