The National Women’s Hockey League will hold their second annual All-Star Game at UMPC Mario Lemieux Sports Complete, the practice facility of the Penguins. The NWHL Skills Competition is on Saturday, Feb. 11 and the All-Star Game is Sunday, Feb. 12.
As such the stylized jerseys feature the black and gold of the Steel City. Team Steadman, captained by Kelley Steadman of the Buffalo Beauts, will don the black jerseys. While Team Kessel, captained by New York Riveters forward Amanda Kessel, will wear gold.
One thing we don’t see is a traditional white jersey, and for that we applaud the NWHL. Their counterparts in the NHL won’t budge on that rule.
