We’re not only interested in the next one-person startup selling a patent that changes the world. Instead, we’re looking for the remote temp worker on your team, the person with a passion project that they could barely afford to fund themselves.

Allie Munroe had heard from a friend that members of the CWHL, including those involved with the Players’ Association, were set to have a conference call Sunday to discuss a pressing matter. But as Munroe sat on her couch that morning, interest piqued and scrolling through Twitter, the last thing she expected to read was that the CWHL would be shutting its doors, that after more than a decade as one of the premier destinations in women’s hockey, the league would cease operations in May.

For Merrimack College standout Katelyn Rae, 21, after the shock came the one question on everyone’s mind: what now? Drafted 12th overall by the NWHL’s Connecticut Whale in 2018, Rae was keeping her options open, and like Munroe, whose hometown is Yarmouth, N.S., Rae had considered choosing the CWHL over the NWHL next season in part because it would have brought her back to familiar territory. “Being down in the States for four years, you don’t really get to go home a lot with the schedule we have,” said Rae, a native of Courtice, Ont. “So being able to play closer to home and have family come to see you was definitely an intriguing factor to the CWHL. That was one of the main reasons (for her interest in the league).” (Source: thehockeynews.com)

Overall, Knox is pleased with what she and others do to create uplift the voices of the players in the Canadian Women's Hockey League. Additionally, Jayna Hefford’s position as interim commissioner, from Knox's perspective, is a good thing: "She has such a well-rounded understanding of what players have been through and are going through and she makes a noticeably conscious effort to take players opinions into consideration and try to make just the experience overall better... The dialogue between the PA, and our commissioner, and our director of hockey ops now is different in that [Hefford] understands where it's coming from and she understands that it is a conversation."
