The Hockey News magazine releases first-ever women's issue
 
What do you do as a hockey magazine when the NHL lockout is dragging on?

Well, here's one solution.

The Hockey News has unveiled its first-ever women’s issue, with this tagline in a release: "With the guys on the sideline it’s her time to shine."

But the plan to release a female-focused edition has been on the back burner for a while, said The Hockey News editor-in-chief, Jason Kay.

“We have wanted to produce an issue about women in hockey for some time,” he said. “Women’s participation in the sport has increased exponentially and stars like Meghan Agosta and Tessa Bonhomme are only a couple examples of women who are trailblazing their way into power positions within women’s hockey — both on and off the ice.”

The issue features how the game is growing, particularly outside of North America; challenges the Canadian Women’s League faces; Hayley Wickenheiser’s domination after nearly 20 years, and more.
 
The Hockey News’ Women’s Issue also features a six-page NCAA preview and THN’s Euro Watch. The magazine is $3.99, and is on newsstands now.

Masthead recently spoke with Kay about how the magazine would stickhandle through NHL negotiations.
