Ryerson University's paper The Ryersonian came out with a bit of a state-of-women's-hockey from the Ryerson Rams perspective, including thoughts from 2 players who have entered the CWHL draft, Rams head coach Lisa Haley (also coach in Sochi) and  Kori Cheverie (Furies player and Rams skate training specialist).
