Amanda Kessel Back to Skating!

In July 2015 Kessel announced her retirement from hockey due to concussions. She was on track to become one of the world’s best female hockey players (think Connor McDavid).

In December, Kessel began skating with her former team, the Minnesota Golden Gophers. It’s unknown if she’s fully joining the team to finish their season, but the fact that she’s back to skating is a very positive sign!
