This Season is the First Year for the Minnesota Whitecaps in the NWHL.
Key Additions: Hannah Brandt, Amanda Leveille, Sydney Rossman, and Lee Stecklein
Top Questions Facing the Whitecaps:
- How will the Minnesota Whitecaps adapt to the NWHL?
While the Whitecaps are an established franchise in the hockey world, however, this will be their inaugural season in the NWHL. Having some NWHL veterans like Hannah Brandt and Amanda Leveille will help the Whitecaps with their transition, but one has to wonder many of the other who have not had an opportunity to play in this league will handle the transition.
2. How will the rest of the league transition to the Whitecaps?
For the first three seasons the NWHL has always been a four team league, and now with the Whitecaps it has grown to five. We know that every team will play eachother 4 times for a total of 20 games which is an increase from 18 last season, but a reduction from 6 games played against each team. Also one has to wonder how the travel can affect the teams. Before the furthest team was the Buffalo Beauts, and now it is the Whitecaps.
