Hockey Wives delivers an exclusive look into the high-stakes lives of WAGs (wives and girlfriends), and reveals that it takes an incredible woman to manage fulfilling personal careers and stick handle life off of the ice with some of today's top pro athletes. There are incredible perks to being a hockey wife, but, make no mistake, balancing the pressure of trades, relentless travel, long periods of separation, injury, retirement and living for the game takes an extraordinary and self-sufficient woman. Though they are based in cities all over North America, the wives cross paths throughout the course of the regular hockey season and are deeply affected by one another. From wives who are new to the league, to those whose partners are Stanley Cup winning superstars or entering retirement, these women form a team of their own, supporting and encouraging one another through personal and professional highs and lows.
