Meghan Duggan, captain of the Olympic champion U.S. hockey team, is pregnant and due in February, her agent confirmed.
Last September, Duggan married fellow Olympic champion Gillian Apps, who earned gold for Canada in 2006, 2010 and 2014, beating Duggan’s U.S. teams in the latter two finals.
Together, they own four Olympic gold medals and 10 world titles.
It’s unknown if Duggan, 31, will return to competitive hockey for the world championship in early April or for a bid to make a fourth Olympic team. She has not played a competitive game since the PyeongChang final.
She would not be the first mother to make a U.S. Olympic hockey team. Most recently, Jenny Potter played at the 2002, 2006 and 2010 Olympics after becoming a mom.
