The CWHL (Canadian Women's Hockey League) was established in 2007 and in 2010 expanded to the United States with the introduction of the Boston Blades (now called the Worchester Blades). The draft happened this past Sunday (8/26/18). It's nice to see former Bulldogs making their dreams come true and playing the professional leagues. Get the full story from DNT here.
