The PWHPA announced details for their first Dream Gap Tour stop of 2020. The organization will be back in Toronto over Jan. 11 and 12, but with more games, more players, and a new title sponsor - Secret Deodorant.

The Secret Women’s Hockey Showcase will feature six teams for a total of 120 players. They will play four games at Herbert H. Carnegie Centennial Centre in North York, one game at Al Palladini Community Centre in Vaughan as part of the Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour stop, and a final game at a to be announced location.

Thirteen players are making their Dream Gap Tour appearance. Notably among them are Ann-Renee Desbiens, Erica Howe, Halli Krzyzaniak, Kelsey Koelzer, and Melissa Samoskevich.

While the rosters change each stop, some continuity is starting to show, especially among the Canadian groups. The US-based groups are a bit more scrambled still.

  • Team Daoust has 11 players who have been rostered for all four stops thus far, while another seven have been on three rosters. Previously, they’ve been Team Poulin (Toronto) and Team Knight (New Hampshire)
  • Team Spooner is largely Team Knox from the first Toronto stop, a group that is also Team Fortino in a PWHPA Live! game.
  • Team Larocque is mostly players from Team Jenner. They will also play in a PWHPA Live! game as Team Larocque.
  • Team Bellamy is Team Johnston from the first Toronto stop as well.

No streaming details were released.

The PWHPA previously teased a Dream Gap Tour stop in Philadelphia and at least one more at a mystery location.
