Wearing her Olympic gold medal, Hilary Knight joined Team USA super fan and comedian Leslie Jones on “Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update.
Knight became one of few Winter Olympic champions to appear on SNL. The only Winter Olympic gold medalist to host the show was Jonny Moseley in 2002.
A Summer Olympic gold medalist hosted Saturday’s show — Dream Team member Charles Barkley for the fourth time.
Knight and the U.S. women’s hockey team have been on a nationwide media tour with stops in Los Angeles (appeared on “Ellen”), the Tampa Bay area (where they trained leading up to PyeongChang), New York and Washington, D.C., appearing at an NHL Stadium Series game in Annapolis, Md., on Saturday.
