In a historic move, Jessica Campbell, an assistant coach for the AHL's Firebirds, took her place behind the bench for the Seattle Krakens in a preseason game against the Calgary Flames.

This marks another significant step forward for women in coaching roles in the NHL. Here is the statement that Jessica Campbell made:

Campbell's presence is part of a growing trend, as more women are breaking barriers and coaching in the NHL. Kori Cheverie, head coach of the PWHL Montreal, recently made history by coaching with the Penguins as well.

Her involvement with the Krakens is not only a personal achievement but also a testament to the organization's commitment to diversity and inclusion in the world of professional hockey.

In a tweet, the Krakens expressed their honor in having Jessica Campbell on board for the game, recognizing the importance of her work with the team.

This historic moment continues to pave the way for more women to pursue coaching careers in the NHL.
