BRAMPTON, ONTARIO - The Brampton Beast, ECHL affiliate of the Ottawa Senators, and the Toronto Six, proud charter Canadian members of the NWHL are proud to announce a unique partnership.
This collaboration is all about exceptional hockey, fan and community engagement and the chance to promote education, empowerment and inclusion.
While the specifics of the relationship will develop over time, we expect it to be a robust relationship including joint camps, practices, fan events, and some double headers down the road.
The two teams have a mutual interest as the Six look to grow the Women's game across Ontario, and the Beast look to expand its fan base for affordable high quality entertainment across the region.
Beast President and General Manager, Cary Kaplan, said "At the Beast we appreciate that Women's Hockey has nothing but growth in its future. We hope that we can play a small part in exposing more and more people to a spectacular quality of hockey that the Six will provide. We feel that we have a lot in common, as many people have still not appreciated or experienced both the exceptional level of hockey in the ECHL, or the equally strong fan experience that the Beast provide. As both teams work to grow their fan bases and partnerships, the sky is the limit."
Six President and Head Coach Digit Murphy added "We are happy to be partnering with an organization like the Beast that shares our core values of inclusion, empowerment, and education. Working together in sport is a powerful message that we will take to our fan base in Toronto! Together the Beast and the SIX will use sports as our platform to be role models and leaders in the community!"
The Brampton Beast and its managing partner, Cosmos Sports and Entertainment, are thrilled to be assisting the Toronto Six carve out a foundation for their team that together we can build on for the future of hockey.
