Blake Bolden

Former NWHL Player and Pro Scout

Overcoming Adversity with a Healthy Mind and Body
 
Dawned the Jackie Robinson of women’s hockey, Blake Bolden has been breaking barriers ever since her father introduced her to the game at six years old. Bolden played her collegiate hockey career at Boston College and was dominant throughout her four-year career. Selected fifth overall in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League Draft in 2013, Bolden became the first African-American player ever taken in the first round of the CWHL Draft. In 2015, when the National Women’s Hockey was established, Bolden signed with the Boston Pride, becoming the first African-American player to compete in the league. Blake is a three-time NWHL All-Star and recorded the fastest shot in the 2017 skills competition at 87 mph. In 2020, Bolden was hired by the Los Angeles Kings as a pro scout, becoming the first African-American female scout and only the second-ever female to be a pro scout for an NHL team. Bolden continues to work for the team, and is a reporter on ESPN.
