Additionally, the semi-finals and finals were set to be broadcast live on NBCSN – a first for professional women’s hockey. Hopefully this carries over when the season continues.
There were so many inspiring firsts and celebratory moments in this short season so far, and we hope to see The Toronto Six and the rest of the league back on the ice soon.
