Krista Duchene posted on instagram this morning wearing one hockey skate and one Saucony running shoe. The Boston third place finisher says that she is heading to the game tonight, and if you tune in early, you just might catch her.
There is speculation the Canadian marathoner has been selected to drop the puck tonight after her strong finish at Boston this past weekend. Duchene would be a great candidate for this job as she competed for four years on the University of Guelph women’s hockey team. Duchene maintains her Guelph connection as she currently trains under coach Dave Scott-Thomas, Guelph Gryphons and Speed River TC head coach.
Tune in tonight to find out if Duchene will in fact drop the puck. Game time is 7pm EST.
