Dani Rylan started a hockey league. But not just any hockey league. A professional hockey league for women that pays its players a salary. The inaugural season of the National Women’s Hockey League is in full swing, and The Players’ Tribune caught up with Dani to see how things are going now that her hockey dream has become a reality.
Listen below as Dani discusses where the idea for the NWHL started, what it really takes to start a professional sports league and why there’s never been a better time for women’s sports in America.
The Players’ Tribune on Mad Dog Radio, hosted by Ben Lyons, airs Wednesdays at 7 p.m. EST on Sirius XM channel 82.
