About us

The Ice Garden is an independent media platform dedicated to covering women's hockey. Our passionate, knowledgeable creators are on the front line of women's hockey. We tell the sport's stories by engaging with its community of players, coaches, and fans.

The Ice Garden began in October 2016 at SB Nation under its first Managing Editor, Hannah Bevis. Since then, TIG and its creators both past and present have made the site an indispensable source of news, analysis, and resources for the entire community. On March 1, 2023, The Ice Garden officially went independent after learning we would no longer be managed and monetized by Vox Media and SB Nation. We are excited for this next chapter – a chapter made possible by the generosity of our community and the work and kindness of our friends.
