BREAKING: NWHL to expand to Canada

The Boston-Montreal rivalry will take on new life, as two teams are expected to sprout in the Great North.

The Buffalo Beauts and Boston Pride will get a few more opponents in the upcoming season.

NWHL commissioner and Northeastern alumnus Dani Rylan announces today that the NWHL will be expanding to the Montreal and Toronto markets following the recent demise of the CWHL this weekend. This announcement comes after Rylan has had meetings with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman.

The NWHL will be expanding the schedule to 24 games and increasing salaries this season as part of a minor additional investment by the NHL.

More details to follow.
