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. The CWHL represents affordable, family-friendly, hockey entertainment. 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 three 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 coaches and management of the five teams as well as media input.
