Podcast: What is going on with the CWHL's expansion to China?

Joe Pack and Hannah Bevis sit down to talk about the CWHL's decision to have two (???) teams in China this season.

A long overdue conversation on the CWHL's expansion to China, the mysterious announcement of a second team, and what it means for the players as well as the women's hockey landscape.

Hannah Bevis and I try to provide as much information and context to this developing story on my podcast, The Big Ice. How will travel work for players who hold down full-time jobs? Who approached whom about expansion and whose interests are at the forefront? Are the players on board? Why two teams instead of just one? Plus, we answer a few listener questions and don't get to many because, frankly, there are too many to cover.
