Blue Sky exclusive client Blake Bolden has been breaking barriers throughout her career on and off the ice. Bolden made history as she became the first ever African-American player taken in the first round of the Canadian Women's Hockey League draft in 2013 and two years later became a CWHL Champion as she hoisted the Clarkson Cup. When the National Women’s Hockey League was established in 2015, Bolden signed with the Boston Pride and became the first African-American player to compete in the league. She helped the team win the inaugural Isobel Cup and was also selected as an NWHL All-Star where she won the fastest shot skills game. In February 2020, the Los Angeles Kings hired her as a pro scout, which made Bolden the first black female scout in NHL history. Blake’s role with the Kings expanded when she was later named the team’s growth and inclusion specialist.
