“A new era of the NWHL is less than 100 days away and we couldn’t be more excited,” said NWHL commissioner Tyler Tumminia. “We look forward to building on the momentum generated during a historic Season 6 where our athletes demonstrated their skills in front of a record broadcast audience and demonstrated their resilience in difficult circumstances. Most importantly, Season 7 will be special because we can share it with our passionate fans who will be back to cheer us on. “

The puck will fall on Saturday, November 6th, 2021 with all six teams in action to kick off the opening weekend. The first three games of the new campaign include a remake of the Isobel Cup Championship Finals between the Boston Pride and the Minnesota Whitecaps, while the Buffalo Beauts host the Toronto Six and the Metropolitan Riveters take on the Connecticut Whale guest.

The Riveters will play their first two home games at the Mennen Arena before returning to the RWJ Barnabas Health Hockey House for Season 7. Minnesota’s TRIA Rink and Toronto’s Canlan Ice Sports – York, where they will make their highly anticipated debut.

A highlight of the Season 7 season schedule is an outdoor event at Buffalo RiverWorks, scheduled for Monday, February 21, 2022, between Beauts and Six, in wintry conditions that promise an unforgettable experience for everyone. It’s only the second time there’s a NWHL regular season game in the elements after an event on the 28th. All other games on the 2021-22 schedule are the traditional family-friendly Saturday and Sunday competitions, with weekend series between teams. The league’s schedule also pauses for Thanksgiving and a Christmas break that includes Christmas and New Years.

2021-22 will mark the second time in the league’s history to play 60 regular season games following the 2019-20 season, when five teams each had 24 advanced games. Last season, the NWHL teams came together for a total of 15 games in Lake Placid before a three-game playoff culminated in the Pride raising the Isobel Cup in Boston. Despite the shortened season, the NWHL athletes played meaningful games and received full contracts and bonuses for 2020-21 as the league established record broadcast and corporate partnerships, audience numbers and digital engagement. That success contributed to a historic salary cap of up to $ 300,000 per team for the upcoming season.

Details on Season 7 broadcasts in addition to the preseason schedule, playoff dates, information on special events and additional partnerships and promotions will be announced in the coming weeks. The NWHL will adhere to all local, state, provincial, and federal guidelines regarding COVID-19 to ensure the safest environments for everyone involved.
