Shannon Szabados: 6 questions for a gold medal goalie
Canadian Olympian talks about playing in a men's pro league
The only bobblehead doll the Columbus Cottonmouths sell is of goalie Shannon Szabados, the two-time Canadian Olympic gold medallist. After all, she's the only woman playing in a North American men's professional hockey league.
The Cottonmouths, based in Columbus, Georgia, look likely to make the Southern Professional Hockey League playoffs.
Szabados was the first star in her team's 4-1 victory against the Knoxville Ice Bears on Sunday. She stopped 31 of 32 shots.
Above are video excerpts from Hunter's interview with Szabados. And below, Hunter's report on CBC-TV's The National, Feb. 16.
