“We’re thrilled to kick off the season in Montreal, where we’ve held a successful event in the past,” said Jayna Hefford, PWHPA Operations Consultant. “The support we’ve received from the organizing groups behind the scenes has been phenomenal, and I know our athletes will, once again, get the first-class treatment they deserve. We also know the fan support in the communities is among the best in women’s hockey, so we can’t wait to bring the best players in the world to them.”
The Montreal games will be played at Verdun Auditorium in partnership with Centre 21.02, the High Performance Hockey Centre and arena where PWHPA players from the Montreal region have been training for three years. Day passes tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here. Single game tickets will go on sale on September 20th. All games will be streamed live via ici.radio-canada.ca/sports
“We are very excited to be back playing in Verdun, the home of women’s hockey, where growing the game is the focus,” said Olympic Gold Medalist and PWHPA goaltender Ann-Renée Desbiens.
