The new PWHL is enjoying tremendous success so far, and professional female hockey players are apparently earning a rather interesting salary.

This is a topic that was discussed in the latest Stanley25 podcast.

«In your opinion, how much does a starting goaltender in the PWHL make?

[His colleague, Maxime Truman, answered that he believed the figure was around $50,000 to $60,000 per year]

It's a bit more! It's below Cole Caufield's salary for an advertisement ($100,000), but it's a bit more than that.» - Jean Trudel

So, a number one goaltender in the PWHL would earn between $60,000 and $100,000 a year, according to JT's information.

See the mentioned sequence and the full episode, very interesting!

Therefore, one might think that the incredible Ann-Renée Desbiens, number one goaltender for Montreal and Team Canada, earns a salary similar to this one.

We are obviously far from the millions that NHL players earn, but it is still quite an improvement.

For a woman like Ann-Renée Desbiens, precisely, to suddenly earn such a sum as an annual salary for playing hockey, it must change a life.

We are so happy for them, it's a start and it's so deserved. It was about time!

Even our beloved Carey Price supports the PWHL as you can see below:
