CALGARY, Alta. – The Canadian Women’s Hockey League is excited to announce a new partnership with PCSN.tv, which will provide audio streaming that will allow Calgary Inferno fans who can’t be at home games to listen to all the action from the arena live online.

Created by cousins Jeff and Marshall Stevenson of Winnipeg, Man., PCSN is a podcast sports network primarily focused on their shared passion for hockey. Their energy and enthusiasm for the sport will ensure listening to colour commentary and play-by-play of the Calgary Inferno’s home games at the WinSport Athletic & Ice Complex will be entertaining and exciting experiences for fans.

“We’re excited to have this opportunity with the CWHL to reach more fans and promote such a great sport,” PCSN co-founder Marshall Stevenson said. “Hockey fans are worldwide, and being able to provide them with play-by-play coverage is a dream come true.”

For the Canadian Women’s Hockey League, the addition of online audio streaming is further indication that the league – and the female game – continue to grow by leaps and bounds.

“The CWHL takes another step forward in helping our fans enjoy games in Calgary when they can’t be there in person, connecting them to the team in a new and fun way,” CWHL commissioner Brenda Andress said. “We are extremely excited as a league to offer audio streaming for the first time.”
