The CWHL released the 2016-17 regular season schedule today, along with a new logo to celebrate their 10th season (I'm sure elseldo will check the math). Beyond the logo, the league announced that each team will hold a Heritage Game, "honouring team alumni and those who have contributed to the growth of their team and the league over the past 10 years".
According to the league's press release, series of special features will also be hosted on CWHL.ca over the course of the year, retelling the stories of the league as well as providing fans with a behind the scenes look at the league’s growth and evolution from its founding to today.
“10 years is a significant achievement for any sporting league and the CWHL is thrilled to celebrate this milestone with fans, players, and partners throughout the 2016-17 season.” CWHL commissioner Brenda Andress said.
“Not only will we have a chance to look back at the amazing stories and moments that make up the CWHL’s history so far and reflect on this incredible journey, but we will have the chance to look forward as we pave the way for the future of the women’s game and the CWHL.”
