Jessica Campbell could make history in the near future as the first female NHL coach in NHL history of rumors of her hire by the Seattle Kraken are true.

With the first full-time female assistant coach taking the bench, the Seattle Kraken could be about to make history with their latest coaching hire. If this ends up occurring, it would be revolutionary.
Recent years have seen significant advancements for women in hockey, both in their own leagues and the NHL, and it seems like more history is about to be made in this area.
The Seattle Kraken are thinking of appointing the first female full-time assistant coach in NHL history, according to TSN's Chris Johnston. The name Jessica Campbell has surfaced Before the upcoming season starts, Dan Bylsma, the new head coach, is working to assemble his staff.
New #SeaKraken head coach Dan Bylsma tells reporters in Seattle that Jessica Campbell will be considered for a job on his coaching staff.

There's never been a full-time female assistant coach in the NHL before.

Although Campbell hasn't even been hired yet, I'm sure this will receive mixed opinions. However, it's becoming increasingly clear that if you have the hockey brain and are qualified for the position, good things will come your way. It also conveys the wonderful message that women have the opportunity to work and play in the NHL.
As part of Bylsma's staff, Campbell, 31, is currently an assistant coach with the Coachella Valley Firebirds, helping the team try to win an AHL title before returning to the NHL. There's clearly no lack of experience there, and if she's capable of doing the work and grasps it, I'd love to see it.
