Although she was originally going to demonstrate the accuracy shooting challenge, Schofield became the first woman to ever compete in an NHL All-Stars skills competition. She had a time of 14.326 seconds, which placed her seventh out of eight skaters, which was comparable to the rest of the eight-person field. In 2019, she became the second woman to serve as an analyst for an NHL Stanley Cup Playoff game.
