The Minnesota Whitecaps, the newest team in the National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL), have just announced their schedule for the 2018-2019 season. The Whitecaps will play eight home games at the TRIA Rink and eight games on the road. Additionally, they are expected to play several exhibition games, mostly against college teams. This includes a game against the British Columbia Thunderbirds and the Minnesota State Mavericks. According to Rachel Blount @BlountStrib players who are not typically part of the Whitecaps’ roster for NWHL games may be used in these exhibition matches.

Considering the fact the team currently only has five players signed—Amanda Leveille, Hannah Brandt, Lee Stecklein, Kate Schipper, and as of today Kendall Coyne Schofield—the Whitecaps have a lot of room on their roster before they need to add extra players for exhibitions. We’ll be excited to see how the team fills in before their first official game of the season and if they continue to add former Gophers and/or Olympic talent. Listed below is the official NWHL schedule with a couple of exhibition games tacked on. All times are central.
