Interesting tidbit that Jamie Sale is currently married to Craig Simpson, who used to play for OilersThe Edmonton Oilers have added former Olympic figure skating champion David Pelletier as a skating coach.
Pelletier is best known for winning the Olympic gold in pairs figure skating along with partner Jamie Sale at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games. The Canadians were awarded gold medals along with a Russian pair after a judging scandal.
Dumb question: Why would a hockey team want to hire a figure skating coach? I know that Kori Ade has done workshops with hockey teams. Is it something to do with the ability of figure skaters to gain speed using edge work>?
