The National Women’s Hockey League will begin its inaugural season this fall with four teams, including the New York Riveters. They will play their home games at the Aviator Sports & Events Center.

The Riveters will open up their 18-game season on October 11 at Connecticut, and will play their home opener on October 18 against Boston. Each team will play one game each weekend, with most of the games on Sundays. All four teams will make the playoffs, with both rounds being best-of-three games.


Four teams are

Boston Pride

Buffalo Beauts

Connecticut Whale

New York Riveters

I'd be really surprised if they finished their season.

Startup hockey leagues have found the going tough, regardless of gender. A distaff version will be even harder, I think.
Old enough to remember when bashing the ABA was fun.

I like the idea.
The biggest problem I see here is all four teams are in "high rent" neighborhoods, so to speak, on the east coast. There's so much other things going on, that it would be hard to drum up much support. On the flip side, transportation costs could be low, since several of these sites are easily accessed using public transportation.
I do like the "Rosie the Riveter" logo for the New York team.
