Across the entire Western Hockey League, there are countless women who make an immeasurable impact, day in and day out, whether on the business side of the operations or within hockey operations.
In the WHL Office, we are incredibly privileged to have an amazing contingent of women who continually push the boundaries and establish exceptional standards, ensuring the WHL continues to serve as the world’s finest development league for junior hockey players.
On International Women’s Day 2021, we thank each of these inspiring women for all they do to make the WHL what it is and we ask you to join us in celebrating them – not only today, but every day and with every new accomplishment.
