The Anaheim Ducks have enlisted the help of a two-time Olympic silver medalist to prepare for the upcoming season, and they'll make a little history in doing so. 

Wisconsin Badger alum and rising star within the women's professional ranks, Hilary Knight will become the first female to skate with an NHL team at Friday's practice, the Ducks announced

Knight scored three goals and six points for the United States at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.
