In addition to the commitment to each PWHPA player, the Canadian Tire Player of the Game will be awarded during each stop of the Secret® Dream Gap Tour, with the top performers being awarded.
The PWHPA is comprised of more than 125 players located within five regions throughout North America; Calgary, Montreal and Toronto in Canada, and Minnesota and New Hampshire in the United States. Current members include Olympians, National Team members and former NCAA, OUA and CWHL players.
