A massive congrats to the Minnesota Whitecaps in capturing the NWHL Championship, Isobel Cup, in their first year in the league.
It's amazing to see the growth of women's hockey in the US. Given we are the State Of Hockey, it's no surprise that the growth here in Minnesota is among the fastest, if not THE fast. 20 of the 25 Whitecaps players are from right here in Minnesota. And this title is only going to help that growth. I believe a hockey locker room and team affords kids an ability to grow and develop as people, better than any other. I'm so excited for the future the young girls of Minnesota will have, playing the game I love.
What a tremendous example of what a team truly is. Again, congrats, and as they say......#RollCaps!

They're really carving a niche into the Twin Cities. Only big things to come. And I was honored to be able to share in their celebration, for a bit, last night. I couldn't be happier for this amazing group of people
