It’s about that time again. With Pittsburgh now looking like a ‘definitely maybe’ for expansion, it’s now time to take a look at the possible candidates that could be joining the Steel City in the NWHL. First up, Washington D.C…
Summer. The time of year when hockey fans sit around wishing that October could come around so that they can get back to watching their beloved teams go at it on the ice, rather than on the trading block. However, what if the NWHL utilized this gap in the NHL season and claimed it as their own?
With the offseason now in full swing and free agency open, there’s plenty of movement around the league. Here I will take a look at some of the biggest signings and roster news so far.
As summer has now arrived, all eyes are firmly set on ‘Season Three’ of the NWHL. For many this season could be make or break for the league, with many star players away at the Olympics and the CWHL expanding to new horizons, rumouring that they will pay their players. This is going to be a tough season for the NWHL. However, it’s not all doom and gloom- there are many promising announcements being made.
Next up in my OTBL Awards for the NWHL’s regular season is the best ‘Offensive Defensive Player’. This is an award that looks for the players from the blue line who can add a bit of firepower along with their defensive duties. First of all I will be considering their production numbers, but will also take into account the line mates that they have been playing with, along with their contribution to the power play.
With the NWHL having only just completed its second season, “rookie” is a loose term to use. Many of these players have plenty of hockey experience under their belt, having competed at world championships and seen ice time in the CWHL. Having said that, it is still their first season in the NWHL, so it seems only fitting that there be an award for Best Rookie of the Year.
It’s finally that time, playoff hockey, and there is nothing quite like it. The first puck drop for the first semi-final will be tomorrow at 7.30pm EST as the heavy Isobel Cup favourites, the Boston Pride, will face this years’ underdog, the Connecticut Whale. Here is what each team needs to do to make it to Sunday’s final.
Last year the New York Riveters were at the bottom of the standings, having managed just four wins during the course of the season, and were swept by the Boston Pride in the Isobel Cup playoffs. Jump forward to the present day, and they have secured the second seed and have a winning record, but what has changed in the past year for such a drastic turn around?
It’s International Women’s , a great opportunity to take a look at all the work that the NWHL has done to promote women’s rights and fight for equality on and off the ice. Here I take a look at three ways that players from the NWHL are addressing these issues as they continue to make history…
After the excitement of the NWHL’s excursion to the city of Pittsburgh in the shape of its annual All-Star game, I decided to have a closer look at the Steel City determine whether it would be possible for the league to put down some more permanent roots in the form of a team.
