Wisconsin born Amanda Kessel has always been a natural at hockey. Coming from a sports-oriented family, there is no shortage of talent across the Kessel board. Her father was drafted into professional football, and her brothers, Phil and Blake, are also professional hockey players. Kessel played for four years at college level hockey, and helped her team win three national championships. In 2013 she was selected as the winner of the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award. Kessel has been on Team U.S.A. since 2008 and in the 2014 Sochi Olympics in Russia, she helped lead her team to a silver-medal win. Most recently, she helped her team win gold in PyeongChang, South Korea in 2018. Outside of hockey, she runs her own clothing line, AK28, with Gongshow Gear. She now devotes her time to supporting the growth and development of young women in hockey, and helping create opportunity for girls who have a dream of getting onto the ice.
