Coming to you live from the heart of Toronto.
The first-ever PWHL Draft will be broadcast live on Monday, September 18th, at 1 p.m. ET. The groundbreaking event will take place at the CBC Headquarters in Toronto, presented by Canadian Tire Corporation, the league’s first Founding Partner.
A hockey pioneer will cover the historic event’s first four rounds: Andi Petrillo, the first woman in CBC Sports' history to cover the game full-time. She will be accompanied by The Athletic staff writer Hailey Salvian, Olympic gold medalist Shannon Szabados and fellow CBC Sportscaster Anastasia Bucsis.
Fans worldwide can tune in a variety of ways, so anyone can follow along whether at home or on the go. Results will be posted live here.
