ABOUT the Calgary Inferno & The CWHL
Founded in 2007, the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL) was created with two goals — create a place for the highest-level women’s hockey players to continue to compete and hone their skills, and to create a future for the sport of women’s hockey. The CWHL currently consists of 6 teams located in Canada, The United States and China, who all compete for the Clarkson Cup Championship.
The Calgary Inferno (formerly known as Team Alberta) is a professional women’s ice hockey team that joined the Canadian Women’s Hockey League for the 2011–12 season. The team plays its home games at at WinSport Canada in Calgary, Alberta. In 2013 the team was rebranded drawing from Calgary’s National Hockey League franchise, the Calgary Flames, with whom they have a partnership. On March 13, 2016, the Calgary Inferno defeated Les Canadiennes de Montreal in an 8–3 final to capture its first Clarkson Cup. Contested at Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre, the first Clarkson Cup final held in an NHL arena, Blayre Turnbull, Brianne Jenner, Jessica Campbell and Rebecca Johnston each scored twice.
