League has added the Minnesota Whitecaps for the 2018-19 season.

This is so awesome. It seemed so odd to not have a team in Minnesota seeing how much of the league is made up of Minnesota girls and that the University of Minnesota is the premier collegiate team.

There's reports that a second expansion team in Pittsburgh will also be added and potentially owned by the Penguins. The Manitoba Maple Leafs have also expressed interest in joining the league. They played in the WWHL from 2010-2012 and are still active today.

Getting the league to 6 teams will make scheduling a bit easier, so I'm hoping another city joins Minnesota.

IF the league is smart, they will target their expansion phases on cities with an already deep hockey culture. I would love to see this league get on the right foot and become viable.
