The Premier Hockey Federation is heading to the Sunshine State.
The PHF announced on Wednesday that the league's 2022 Isobel Cup Playoffs will be held in Wesley Chapel, Florida in March, with all six teams taking part in the first postseason to be held at a neutral site.
Scheduled to kick off on Mar. 25, the playoffs will use AdventHealth Centre Ice as its home rink, with the arena currently standing as the largest ice sports complex in the southeastern United States, having played host to events such as the 2017 Four Nations Cup and the most recent NHL prospects showcase.
All games will be available to stream exclusively on ESPN+, the league's official streaming partner this season, with the Isobel Cup Final to be broadcast nationally on ESPN 2.
This year's final will also serve as the first professional women's hockey game to be broadcast on television by ESPN in the network's history, standing as a significant moment for the sport's commercial viability in the United States.
The Boston Pride will look to defend their title in March after capturing the 2021 Isobel Cup last March after multiple outbreaks of COVID-19 forced the then-named NWHL regular season to be canceled and the playoffs to be moved to the Boston Bruins' practice facility.
This year will likely not offer similar hurdles, allowing the true talent of the PHF to take center stage.
