Professional Women’s Hockey League makes record breaking debut

The puck dropped on the inaugural season of the Minnesota Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL) on January 6 to record breaking results. 

In their first game, a 3-0 shutout victory over Montreal, Minnesota shattered the single game attendance record for professional women’s hockey, with 13,316 fans listed as the official attendance, dwarfing the previous record of 8,318 set just a few days earlier at the PWHL game between Ottawa and Montreal.

The previous record was 7,765 for a game in Sweden.

The PWHL is in its first year of operation. It has six teams, three each in Canada and the United States, including the Minnesota squad. The season features 24 games per team.
