Pittsburgh Penguins president Brian Burke says it can’t happen soon enough. He says he is encouraged by the progress the league has made in diversifying its image as a boys club. The NHL Coaches’ Association is helping lead the way. It established a developmental program for women at various hockey levels working directly with NHL coaches in advanced training sessions.
