Women's hockey league to increase salary cap, add 2 teams

From KSTP | News by Associated Press

The Premier Hockey Federation is more than doubling each teams' salary cap to $750,000 and adding two expansion franchises next season in a bid to capitalize on the wave of attention women's hockey traditionally enjoys following the Winter Olympics.

The PHF's announcement on Tuesday of its board of governors' commitment to invest more than $25 million over the next three years is also considered a major step in attempting to thaw its relationship with United States and Canadian national team players, who have balked at joining North America's lone professional women's hockey league.
