Women’s Pro Hockey Coming to Tsongas Center

The newly established Professional Women’s Hockey League will drop the puck on it’s inaugural season on New Year’s Day with a matchup between the Toronto and New York franchises.

But the bigger news for Lowell is yesterday’s announcement that the Boston team will play its games at the Tsongas Center, with its home and season opener scheduled for Wednesday January 3 against Minnesota.

The new league was formed over the summer, when new ownership acquired the National Women’s Hockey League, which had been in existence since 2015. The league is backed by Los Angeles Dodgers owner Mark Walter and all-time tennis great Billie Jean King.

Along with Boston, Toronto and New York, the PWHL will feature teams in Minnesota, Montreal and Ottawa.

While team names have yet to be announced, color schemes and uniform designs have been released, as well as some of the players who will skate for each entry.

The Lowell-based team is expected to field a competitive squad, with Alina Muller headlining the roster. The Northeastern star finished her last season for the Huskies with 60-points, tops in the nation among all women’s college hockey players.

    My name is Alan St.louis and I am the World Record Holder for singing the National Anthem that has sung for many events at the TSONGAS Arena!
    I saw that your women’s hockey team is going to be playing their games there and I am interested in performing a few National Anthems for the ladies.
    I also sing the Canadian Anthem as well!
    I look forward to hearing from you soon!
