    Huge potential loss for the UW women, per tristarscoop, Sophie Shirley has registered for the CWHL draft, possible admittance into UW issues ala Cainfarano. Without her UW's O will be seriously neutered missing Clark and Pankowski. Nothing is confirmed about her future, but it's an enormous red flag. What a depressing day for UW hockey between this and Don Granato going to the B-Hawks.

    The draft criteria below would make her ineligible.

    In order to proceed with the registration process, please read and acknowledge the following guidelines.
    2017/2018 Teams: The CWHL will include 6 teams for the 2017/2018 season. Two teams will be located in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in Brampton and Toronto, and one team will be located in each of Boston, Calgary, China, and Montréal.

    Entry Draft Date: The Entry Draft for all teams for all new players will be held on Sunday, August 20, 2017.

    Entry Draft Eligibility: In order to be eligible for the CWHL Entry Draft, players must meet the following criteria:

    All players shall be at least the age of 20 in order to be eligible to be selected in the Entry Draft. “Age of 20” is defined as a player reaching her twentieth birthday between January 1 in the calendar year of the Entry Draft and no later than September 15 in the calendar year of the Entry Draft.

    The player has not previously signed a standard player contract with a CWHL Club.

    The player is not currently on the Reserve List of any Club.

    The player is not committed to an NCAA or CIS program.

    The player has not been claimed in a previous CWHL Entry Draft.

    Entry Draft Registration Fee: There is a non-refundable fee of $150 CDN, payable at the time of registration, in order to be included in the CWHL Entry Draft. Registrations will only be considered complete upon receipt of the Entry Draft Registration Fee.

    Registration fees include a guaranteed draft position and covers training camp costs including ice. Those ranked in the Top 10 for the Draft will also be invited by the league to attend the CWHL Draft on Sunday August 20th.

    Player registration for 2017 Entry Draft: Players who meet the criteria defined above are eligible to register for the 2017 CWHL Entry Draft prior to midnight on August 1, 2017.

    Only players who have completed their registration and submitted their payment prior to midnight (ET) on August 1, 2017 will be eligible for the 2017 Entry Draft.

    Acceptable Locations: As part of the registration process, each prospective player must indicate the CWHL city or cities in which they are willing to play (“Acceptable Locations”), selecting a minimum of one (1), up to a maximum of three (3). Given that the GTA has 2 teams, a selection of the GTA counts as 2 selections. Players selecting GTA may select only one other team. Players are not permitted to designate a specific team within the GTA.

    Selections of Acceptable Locations are not ranked in order of preference. In choosing an Acceptable Location, the player is indicating to the league that she is prepared to play in any of her selected Acceptable Locations. Acceptable locations will be listed and presented in alphabetical order as follows:
    Boston

    Calgary

    China

    GTA (2)

    Montréal

    Change of “Acceptable Locations”: A player is permitted to change the designation of her “Acceptable Locations” until midnight (EST) on August 1, 2017. The Manager of Operations will inform all CWHL General Managers within 24 hours of receipt of a player’s change of Acceptable Locations.

    Announcement of Entering Elite Players: The CWHL will announce by August 15, 2017, the top ranked players who have registered for the 2017 Entry Draft. The top 3-5 players at each position (forward, defense, and goalie) will be announced by the CWHL regardless of their designated Acceptable Locations.

    Team Tryouts: Upon being drafted to a CWHL team, players will be invited to tryouts. Dates and times for tryouts will be set by the teams’ General Managers. Tryouts are held in September.

    Rosters: Teams will roster 25 players to their active roster.

    International Players: The CWHL welcomes players from around the world. International players require additional paperwork, for which the league will aid.

    Relocation and Employment: Housing, moving expenses, and employment are the responsibility of the Player. The league will provide as much assistance as possible.

    Further information: Any further questions can be directed to draft@thecwhl.com.

    you can sure tell from the terms that it's Canada
    what a Mickey Mouse league, if they were in the US I'd sue them for false advertising. "Pro" what a joke.
    tip to the players: form your own freakin' league, use your college degree for something other than something to do when you aren't playing hockey
    Democrats are making a big deal out of the Russian involvement in our elections to deflect attention away from all the Messicans and other non citizens who vote in our elections.

    Ok! Time to stop the pity party!! My gosh! We are talking about WISCONSIN here! While losing Shirley (if it's even true) for the season may not be ideal, its not like this team is void of talent! 10 of the players on this upcoming seasons team are returning after having played in the NCAA Championship Game!! Don't underestimate that experience factor!! 8 of the 12 forwards and 5 of the 7 defensemen on this seasons team were part of Team USA or Team Canada U-18's in past World Championships. That means these players were chosen as the BEST of the BEST for that age group (17 and 18 yr. olds) a year or two before coming to college! In goal you can expect weekly battles in practice between all 3 goalies for the starting spot -- that is a good thing. When Cece needed to play in in 5 or 6 games last year she played very well! Furthermore, EVERY team that appears to be Wisconsin's biggest rivals (UM included) has lost top talent to graduation and or the Olympics. In fact the top 5 returning scores for the Badgers (Roque, Cogan, Wellhausen, Norby, Shaver) totaled 43 goals, 72 assists, and 115 points. The top 5 returning Gopher scorers totaled 25 goals, 45 assists and 70 points. I am also very optimistic about this team and the leadership that remains. In particular the seniors- Wellhausen, Williams, and Kepler. The UW coaching staff is both experienced and one of if not the best in the country. They will have this team ready to go when the season begins. The WCHA will be a tightly contested this season no doubt. But there is every reason to believe this team can win the conference as well as make the NCAA tournament again!

    Wow, 5 pages of posts for 2017-18 and it's only mid June! Wisco fans need to get an off-season life. Go to the Dells or something people!

    LOL....You and I are opposites on how full the glass is....UW lost 234 pts to graduation and the Olympics and is returning 183 pts. Are the 6 freshmen + Kepler (not counting Shirley) going to score 234 pts? No. Are they going to score 150? Probably not, since 2 are D. Roque put up 28 and Norby 21. They will be hard pressed to have any player score 40 pts.

    Shirley is a game changer. If it doesn't work out, it's a huge problem. Will they contend for the wcha title? Yes. Will they be in the ncaa top 8 at the end of the year? Who knows. The rodents may be down a bit too, but those eastern teams will not be and UW and UM will not be the prohibitive ncaa favorites.

    I truly hope you are right and I am horribly wrong (as usual ).

    I just think there are some real positives to build on for this Badgers team as stated in my previous post. It's frustrating as a Badger fan to see the optimism from fans on the Gopher thread and the doom and gloom on our thread! And Minnesota lost the same if not more due to graduation and the Olympics. Let's just see how this season plays out. Yes, things will be tougher offensively but even with all last years firepower we only managed to score one goal over the last two games of the season. Maybe this seasons team wins games with scores of 2-1 or 3-2 more than the a 7-0 blowouts we are all used to! Whatever it takes should be the motto. I really think this team has more talent than given credit.

    Yes, I think more open ice benefits the better skating team. Mariucci is getting narrowed some day soon BTW

    I find women's hockey is much better and more exciting on standard NHL size rinks, not Olympic sheets. The game slows down too much on the bigger surface and missed passes are more numerous. D1 not so much as D3 of course. D3 definitely belongs on standard rinks.

    As would I, but it's just not realistic. That was my point.

    The potential Shirley situation makes me ponder how Cianfarano would have impacted the outcome for UW the last 3 years. Schools should have the same minimum admission standards across the board and have elevated ones for certain programs.

    Wisconsin's admission standards are definitely affecting their wins and losses, don't you find it refreshing that they actually have academic standards? While first hand the U of M and Quinnepiac are letting these girls in, for women's D1 athletics maybe they are preparing these girls for there future? Besides I am not sure TT has had an impact that the other recruits have accomplished. I find it refreshing that they have standards. While losing in the National Championship was disappointing, with no real financial pro league to provide financial security it is great to see an institution not sell there soul to hang banners. Young women have been picking schools based on banners and not degree's for years and it takes a very high moral standard to decline a 5 star recruit admittance based on academics and not sweeping it under the rug.

    It's hard to argue with this, it's just as little sad a young lady can't fulfill her dream and go to the school she wants, though that in itself can be a good life lesson. Hopefully somehow it comes together for Sophie.

    It should be noted that the problem with Cianfarano's admission was failing to meet a Big 10 standard, so she wouldn't have been admitted to Minnesota, either.

    There you go again, bringing a fact into the discussion.

    These things are bound to happen when you commit to girls 3 years before they graduate. Actually I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often, but maybe that speaks to the "value" placed on their athletic abilities versus their educational abilities......
