Created and organized by local volunteer businesspeople and veteran Canadian Olympic Team members such as Jennifer Botterill and Sami Jo Small, the Canadian Women's Hockey League (CWHL) will begin its first season during the fall of 2007 with seven teams based out of Ontario and Quebec. It replaces the eastern division of the National Women's Hockey League, which suspended operations in May 2007 due to ongoing financial and structural woes.
"What makes this league different is that many of the teams will be supported by the girls' minor hockey associations in the communities in which the teams are located," Small told TheHockeyNews.com.
