The fourth annual CWHL All-Star game will be taking place at the Scotiabank Arena (40 Bay St, Toronto, ON M5J 2X2) on Sunday, January 20, 2019
The CWHL All-Star event falls into our pillar of continued support for growing the game of hockey in our community. Our aim is to provide these athletes with a first-class experience and the fans with a chance to see the best of women’s hockey with an NHL in-game experience. It’s a game of skill, speed, and finesse and the access to these hockey heroes is unprecedented.
The Toronto Maple Leafs first announced a partnership with the Toronto Furies of the CWHL in 2012. While we continue to support the Toronto Furies as our official partner, we are supporters of the CWHL as a whole and of all of the teams involved in this professional league.
There will be (3) full 20 minute periods of hockey.
The 34 players are the best of the CWHL — CWHL professionals, Olympians, and National Team players. The 34 players were pre-selected based on input from the coaches and management of the six teams, as well as media input. The captains will then be selected by fans through online voting, to start on December 10 and run through until midnight on January 4. On Saturday, January 19 there will be an exclusive draft event where the team Captains will pick their starting line-ups and the remaining players will be chosen by a stick pull (road-hockey style!).
