Description (Brief):

Ice hockey stick used by forward Megan Duggan, Captain of Team USA Hockey at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Games while winning the gold medal. Megan Duggan was the captain of the 2018 Women’s National hockey team winning the Gold medal at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Games. Growing up she was forced to play on boy’s hockey leagues as girl leagues weren’t available. Facing inequity for support and conditions for women’s hockey, she and her fellow teammates threatened to boycott the 2017 World Championships until conditions were met by USA Hockey.
