Episode 11: From #OneLeague to #NoLeague – The Future of Women’s Pro Hockey in Canada

 

On episode 11 of Changing On The Fly, we tackle the devastating news that the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL) is shutting down its operations after 12 seasons. The announcement from the league came just one week after the Clarkson Cup championship match, and the day before many players from the league were set to fly overseas to Finland for the women’s world hockey championships. Bad timing to say the least.

We break down and analyze what this all means with two of the most passionate voices in women’s hockey media.

Shireen Ahmed is a writer, public speaker, and co-host of the feminist sports podcast Burn It All Down.

Episode 7 – Making Hockey History w/ Jessica Platt

 

On this episode of the podcast, we bring you an exclusive and candid conversation with Jessica Platt of the Toronto Furies! On January 10, 2018, Jessica made history when she came out as the first trans pro hockey player in Canada. And she did so in a beautiful message posted to Instagram, encouraging other young trans athletes to be their true selves, and follow their dreams. In our interview, Jessica tells us her story about growing up, falling in love with hockey, her struggles that forced her to leave the game, and then coming back to the very top.
