USA’s Hilary Knight Makes World Championship History

For more than a decade, there has been one constant with USA Hockey, and that’s the dominant play from Hilary Knight. She is already one of the United States’ most decorated hockey players ever and just recently added to her impressive resume.

Knight has suited up and represented Team USA for a total of 197 games playing in the Olympics, World Championships, Four Nations Cup, Rivalry Series, and many more. Over that span, she has collected an impressive 132 goals and 97 assists for 229 points.

The veteran forward has won her fair share of medals, including winning Olympic gold once (2018) and silver three times (2010, 2014, 2022). On top of her impressive Olympic resume, she has represented her country 11 times at World Championships bringing home gold eight times and silver three.

Yesterday, Knight made history during the USA’s 12-1 win over Hungary. She had a goal and an assist for her 86th and 87th career points to pass Canada’s Hayley Wickenheiser for the most points ever at the World Championships.

Knight recorded her record-breaking 87th point in style as she tacked on a goal early in the third period to make the score 11-0. Knight initially broke the record in the second period but had that assist taken away, but it didn’t take her long to make up for that.

At just 33 years old Knight still has plenty of years left to continue her reign. If she can continue her dominance who knows how high she can run up her points total. She may even hit the 100 point mark before everything is all said and done. USA will continue their run in this year’s World Championships tomorrow when they take on Team Czechia.
