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.
