NBC Sports provides the NWHL?s biggest games in our upcoming season in Lake Placid with best-in-class production and award-winning announcers. The NWHL will deliver intense, memorable hockey for the viewers on NBCSN as an Isobel Cup champion is crowned.”

This will be the first time women’s professional hockey games will be aired on a major national network.

The NWHL will head to Lake Placid to play its shortened season in a bubble. The season will be held Jan. 23 through Feb. 5.
