Since then, she has worked with MSG Network, providing analysis for the New York Islanders; with CBC on Hockey Night in Canada and as part of their Olympic broadcast team; and Sportsnet, joining their Hometown Hockey, Wednesday Night Hockey, Hockey Central, and Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts. She is also a part of the highly anticipated broadcast team for Turner Sports’ NHL on TNT coverage for the 2021-2022 season, and was part of NBC’s first-ever all-women NHL broadcast team in 2020.
