Die NHL könnte vom neuen Playoff-Format der Frauen-Eishockeyliga lernen

von NFI Redaktion

The PWHL has achieved a lot in just a few months since its establishment. Visitor records have been set, and it has bridged the gaps in women’s hockey that had formed. It has given a boost to women’s hockey below the international level, which was stuck in neutrality due to divisions between groups and leagues.

It is now the first league to opt for a playoff system that welcomes a bit of spice. The team finishing the regular season first can choose who they believe they are more likely to beat, making each series more personal.

The PWHL also implements a 3-2-1-0 points system where regular wins hold more value than OT or shootout wins, something sought after by NHL fans for a while.

Furthermore, the PWHL uses a reverse draft order system, aligning the number one draft pick with the team collecting the most points after being eliminated from playoff contention.

The league has a growing fan base and is innovating to attract more general hockey fans by offering familiar elements and addressing issues like tanking.

In a bold move, the PWHL stands out by trying new approaches, demonstrating a commitment to engaging all hockey fans.

Costa Rica won the toss, a reminder that life can sometimes be as random as a flip of a coin.
