History

After playing exhibition games throughout Saskatchewan in 2003-04, the Prairie Ice joined the Calgary Oval X-Treme, Minnesota Whitecaps, Edmonton Chimos and British Columbia Breakers in forming the Western Women's Hockey League in 2004-2005. In 2006, the two leagues were reunited under the NWHL banner. However, this was short lived as the NWHL and WWHL could not reach an agreement upon a playoff schedule. As a result, the merger was not consummated. With the collapse of the NWHL in the summer of 2007, the Western Women's Hockey League was once again a completely independent league. The Prairie Ice have suspended operations in summer 2007.
