Know Before You Go
On March 12, 2020, the Western Hockey League (WHL) announced it has suspended its season until further notice. For more information, visit the WHL website.
The Western Hockey League’s Portland Winterhawks may not boast big-name talent, but make no mistake — the National Hockey League starts here. Literally. Since the team relocated to Portland in 1976, the major-junior-league Winterhawks have sent more than 100 players to the NHL, including hall-of-famers like Mark Messier and Cam Neeley. So keep your eyes glued to the ice at Memorial Coliseum and Moda Center because hockey’s next all-star might just be a slap shot away from becoming a household name.
The Winterhawks’ season runs September-March, though they’re no strangers to post-season play; the team thrilled its avid fans by winning the 2013 WHL Championship, their third time claiming the title.
