Just Who Are We?
The Women’s Hockey Tribune was formed in August, 2019 to bring the best women’s hockey coverage to fans and players alike. A website devoted to in-depth analysis, news breaking and featured stories, TWHT should be your number one stop for women’s hockey news!
It all started with an email, when Bill Flanagan reached out to Alex Thomas. Flanagan, the father of USWNT player and former Boston College star Kali Flanagan wanted to help start a site that provides the best and most honest women’s hockey coverage. Thomas, who covers Women’s Hockey East for Northeastern, Holy Cross and Boston University, agreed that a news site was needed. Together, they started The Women’s Hockey Tribune
