The Canadian Women’s Hockey League is the modern incarnation of elite club hockey, featuring teams in both Canada and USA. It was inaugurated by a group of players, launched with clubs in the provinces of Ontario and Québec. The league – both its landscape and player pool – replaced the defunct NWHL in 2007. Before the CWHL, the National Women’s Hockey League ruled the roost for nearly a decade. It was in fact an expansion of the old Central Ontario Women’s Hockey League, officially taking its new name more than half way through the 1998-99 season. The NWHL initially featured teams in Ontario and Québec, but expanded to feature teams in British Columbia and Alberta. Those teams from the west eventually left to form the Western Women’s Hockey League, with additional teams in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Minnesota (USA). Today, the CWHL is the place to be, with teams in Ontario, Québec, Massachussets (USA), and Alberta.

ROAD TO THE CLARKSON CUP Since 2009, the best women’s hockey players have competed for the Clarkson Cup, the trophy emblematic of elite club hockey supremacy. The trophy was donated - and has been presented annually - by the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson, former Governor General of Canada. Initially, teams from both the Canadian Women’s Hockey League and Western Women’s Hockey League competed for the trophy. Since 2012, however, only CWHL teams have competed in a final playoff championship for the Clarkson Cup. In the first five years, the Stars de Montréal won the Clarkson Cup three times, including the first-ever win on March 21, 2009 in Kingston, Ontario. The Stars won 3-1 over the Minnesota Whitecaps to claim the maiden title, with Sabrina Harbec scoring the winning goal. The following year, the west’s Whitecaps won the Clarkson Cup after a 4-0 blanking of the Brampton Canadettes Thunder in Richmond Hill. The Stars then won back-to-back Clarkson Cup titles in 2011 and 2012. In Barrie, the Stars won the 2011 title with a 5-0 shutout win over the Toronto Furies. Then in Niagara Falls, the Stars claimed the 2012 title with a 4-2 win over Brampton. In 2013, the Boston Blades won the Clarkson Cup in Markham, ON. In the championship final, the Blades knocked off the two-time defending winners from Montréal with a 5-2 victory. Finally in 2014, the Toronto Furies won the Clarkson Cup in Markham, ON after a 1-0 overtime win over the Boston Blades. One year later, the Blades won 3-2 in overtime over the Stars.

NOTE - The February 10 Ottawa-Montréal game was worth six points (three wins) because Ottawa & Montréal were unable to make up two cancelled games. Montréal won the game 5-0.

Playoff composition: the division champions each earned an automatic bye into the second round of the playoffs. The next four-best teams, regardless of division, qualified for the first round of the playoffs. March 22, 2008 - The Brampton Canadettes-Thunder won the inaugural Canadian Women’s Hockey League playoff championship. Rookie defender Molly Engstrom scored the winning goal with just 2:50 left in the first overtime period, giving the Canadettes-Thunder a 4-3 victory over the Mississauga Chiefs.

Note 1: Burlington and Ottawa were unable to schedule two games for their first-round playoff series, so they played one game only. Note 2: The semi-final winners (Brampton and Mississauga) also qualified for the 2008 Esso Women’s Nationals. The two CWHL finalists joined the two Western Women’s Hockey League finalists (Calgary and Minnesota). The Chiefs won the 2008 championship.

Lori Dupuis, who scored a goal and two assists, was named the championship game MVP. Dupuis scored an assist on Engstrom’s winning goal.

CWHL Playoffs - First Round (two-game series): Burlington wins 2-1 over Ottawa (one game only); Mississauga wins both games over Vaughan (6-2, 6-2). CWHL Playoffs - Second Round (two-game series): Mississauga eliminates Montréal (Mississauga wins 4-3, loses 4-1, then wins the series in a shootout); Brampton eliminates Burlington (Brampton wins first game 5-2, then second game ends tied 3-3).

From the regular season, it was Jayna Hefford who was named CWHL Most Valuable Player. She led the league with 26 goals. Jennifer Botterill, meanwhile, was named Top Forward after leading the league with 37 assists and 61 points. Becky Kellar was voted Top Defender while Kim St-Pierre was voted Top Goaltender. Points-per-game leader Marie-Philip Poulin was voted the league’s Outstanding Rookie. 4 | hockeyMedia.ca

WHO’S WHO IN WOMEN’S HOCKEY GUIDE The new edition of the Who’s Who in Women’s Hockey Guide features a player-by-player timeline of club hockey activity over the past 20 years. More than 1,800 current and former players are listed in alphabetical order. The guide features statistics from the Canadian Women’s Hockey League and its predecessors, the National Women’s Hockey League, the Western Women’s Hockey League and the Central Ontario Women’s Hockey League. Up North Productions has carefully tracked these timelines for more than a decade, with an archive of gameby-game statistics since 2006-07. With the debut of the Canadian Women’s Hockey League in 2007-08, Up North Productions introduced the Angela James Bowl to recognise the league’s top scorer. The trophy was donated in order to help preserve the statistical history of the new league and to help tell the story of women’s hockey at the elite club level.
