GRAND FORKS — For the first time in 16 years, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson won't be going to the Winter Olympics.

But the Grand Forks native has a pretty special weekend planned instead.

Lamoureux-Davidson has been added as a participant in the NHL's All-Star Game weekend in Las Vegas.

She will compete in two NHL All-Star Skills challenge events at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

The former UND standout and three-time Olympic medalist will participate in the Fountain Faceoff and the Accuracy Shooting competitions along with the NHL's best players.

The Fountain Faceoff will take place on the Bellagio Fountains. Players will travel by boat to a makeshift rink and will attempt to shoot pucks into five targets in the least amount of time. There will be fountain spray during the event.

In the Shooting Accuracy event, players will attempt to hit four 15-inch targets from 25 feet out.

This won't be Lamoureux-Davidson's first time at the NHL All-Star Game. In 2020, she participated in a 3-on-3 game as part of the weekend.

Lamoureux-Davidson and her twin sister, Monique Lamoureux-Morando, retired after leading the U.S. to its first Olympic gold in 20 years during the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

In the gold-medal game, Lamoureux-Morando scored the game-tying goal late in the third period and Lamoureux-Davidson won it in with a highlight-reel goal in the shootout to lift the Americans past Canada.

The Lamoureux twins won silver at the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics.
