    The Devils and the Riveters Form a Hockey Partnership

    The Devils will become the first N.H.L. team to hold an ownership stake in a women’s professional hockey franchise, agreeing to a three-year partnership with the Riveters of the National Women’s Hockey League. The deal is expected to be announced Thursday morning.

    The Devils’ investment includes providing rent-free facilities for Riveters games and practices in Newark, and assisting in sponsorships, ticket sales and marketing. The teams declined to discuss the financial terms of the partnership.

    This is great to see. Awesome for the game & the development of Women's Pro hockey! Hopefully this starts a trend that will catch on with other teams who have that financial opportunity (and means) in order to form a similar partnership.

    Good for them.

    The NHL has done lots of "grow the game" type things over the last 20 years... and I do think they've done it with some success.

    If they want to grow the game, and get more girls playing (which, in theory, gets them more fans) - a professional woman's league is one way to help do that. Only way these leagues will work is with help, and the NHL (and the teams) is in a great position to help.
