The PWHL announced both the second PWHL Draft and the inaugural PWHL Awards ceremony would take place on June 10 and 11 in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

The seven-round, 42-pick PWHL draft will be held on June 10 at 7 p.m. ET at the Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium. PWHL New York earned the first selection in each round after accumulating the most “draft order points” following its elimination from playoff contention. PWHL Ottawa finished behind New York in “draft order points,” so the franchise will pick second in each round.

The awards ceremony will be held on June 11 at 1:30 p.m. ET at the InterContinental Saint Paul Riverfront Hotel.
