U.S. downs Russia as Hilary Knight sets women’s world hockey scoring record Natalie Spooner is warming to her job of creating havoc in front of the opposition’s net to generate scoring chances from close range.
The 30-year-old from Toronto scored two goals tipping in teammates’ shots in Canada’s 5-0 win over Switzerland in the women’s world hockey championship Tuesday.
“The longer your career goes, you always kind of have to evolve as a player to maintain and stay at this level,” Spooner said.
“If you look back at my game, oh, eight to 10 years ago, I definitely was a much different player. Probably tried to take people on one on one way more.”
“I’ve kind of found the parts of my game where I do have a lot of success, and really honed in on those.”
