This weekend, we have not one but two All-Star Games! What an embarrassment of riches.
CWHL All-Star Game
- Teams will be picked by the two captains, Julie Chu and Natalie Spooner, on Friday night. The captains were chosen previously by fan-vote. The 2016 Frozen Fantasy Draft will be held on Friday January 22nd 2016 from 7 to 10pm at the Hilton Toronto.
