The PWHPA is Back in the 'Burgh
The PWHPA is excited to be heading back to the ‘Burgh, following the success of the March 2022 post-Olympic “Rivalry Rematch” between Canada and the United States, which saw an attendance of more than 5,000 fans for the game hosted by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Star players will once again be on the ice, including the likes of Hilary Knight (Team Sonnet), Marie-Philip Poulin (Team Harvey’s), Sarah Nurse (Team adidas) and Megan Keller (Team Scotiabank).
“The city of Pittsburgh, as well as the Penguins, have been great supporters of the PWHPA so we’re thrilled to be heading back in November,” said PWHPA Operations Consultant Jayna Hefford. “With the success of our Rivalry Rematch game earlier this year, we know there’s a huge appetite for elite women’s hockey in Pittsburgh so we know this will be a great weekend for both the fans and our athletes. We’re also excited to be involved with the ‘Burgh Girls Fest’ tournament throughout the weekend— by providing young players visibility and access to the best hockey players in the world, we’re continuing our goal of growing the game.”
“The Penguins are honored to host the PWHPA players once again at our world-class facilities,” said Penguins President of Business Operations Kevin Acklin. “The support for women’s hockey in Pittsburgh was on display during the Rivalry Rematch this past March at PPG Paints Arena. Hosting some of the best female hockey players in the world at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in November continues the Penguins’ commitment to growing the sport of hockey for girls, not only in Pittsburgh, but throughout North America.”
