After Hilary Knight skated with the Anaheim Ducks, the two-time U.S. Olympian emerged confident she can play hockey with anybody in the world.

Knight practiced with the Ducks on Friday as part of her work to raise the profile of women's hockey. She is thought to be the first non-goalie to practice with an NHL team, and the Ducks say Knight fit in perfectly.

Knight joined the Ducks for the first 25 minutes of their workout, going through skating and passing drills. She returned later for 20 minutes of shooting.

Knight also dropped in as a guest coach for a Ducks-affiliated women's team on another rink in the Ducks' training complex.

Knight is among the world's best players. She won an NCAA title at Wisconsin and two Olympic silver medals.
