PWHL Ottawa announces three new signings

PWHL Ottawa is one of the six inaugural teams of the Professional Women's Hockey League (PWHL). The other teams are based out of Boston, Montreal, Minnesota, New York, and Toronto

The PWHL Ottawa outfit has signed three new signings, becoming the first team to officially sign players to the inaugural team. The incoming signings, all associated with Team Canada, are Brianne Jenner, Emerance Maschmeyer, and Emily Clark.

“We are thrilled with the three players we have signed as the inaugural players for the Ottawa franchise. We truly believe that we have three incredible hockey players,” Ottawa GM Mike Hirshfeld said.

Brianne Jenner, 32, is hands down one of the greatest names in women’s hockey for the past decade. A veteran forward played for Calgary Inferno of the CWHL from 2015 to 2019. She also donned the jersey for Team Sonnet (Toronto) in the PWHPA. On International Ice, Jenner has proven herself over and over again. A three-time Olympic Medalist (2G, 1S), Jenner has also won the World Championships three times and placed second five times.
