On Monday morning, the Colorado Avalanche announced two additions to the coaching staff for the season, as part of the NHL Coaches’ Association Diversity Guest Coach Program.

Kim Weiss and Kelsey Cline are on the ice today at development camp, and will join the team for parts of training camp, and periodically throughout the season.

“We’re excited to welcome Kim and Kelsey to our staff for development camp and training camp this season,” said Avalanche head coach Jared Bednar. “In addition to gaining valuable NHL experience for their growth and development as coaches, both women bring strong coaching and playing backgrounds and will be a great benefit to our young players.”

Weiss is a member of the National Hockey League Coaches Association Female Coaches Program and has been a featured speaker in the organization’s mentorship program. She became the first woman in North American Junior Hockey to serve as a head coach earlier this year for the Maryland Black Bears of the NAHL.

Weiss played college hockey at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut from 2007-11, and was team captain as a junior and senior.

Cline is entering her first season as assistant coach of the Ohio State women’s hockey team. She was named Director of Operations in 2001 for the team. She played college hockey at the University of Minnesota from 2013-17, scoring 29 points in 161 games. Her Gophers won the National Championship in both 2015 and 2016.
