Last night, I wrote a landmark moment at CHL, the Canadian little one: a woman recruited to play a non-goalkeeper position.
The Vancouver Giants have secured the services of Chloe Primerano, who plays man of defense, with the 268th pick for auction, or in the thirteenth round overall. Leftist is also a native of Vancouver.
A moment in history tonight in Tweet embed : For the first time a woman was recruited without being a goalkeeper.
Chloe Primerano is making history as a defender. He was selected by the Vancouver Giants in Round 13 (268th overall). #WHL

She became the first female figure skater to be drafted by a CHL club. In the past, Charlie Labonte (1999, QMJHL), Jenny Lavigne (2002, QMJHL) and Taya Currie (OHL, 2021) have all been drafted, but those are three goalkeepers. Therefore Primerano is also the first to be drafted in the WHL.
Among the many, only Labonte played in the CHL. Shannon Zappados (WHL), Manon Ryome (LHJMQ) and ve Gascon (LHJMQ) have had time to play in the past.
Why did the giants take a chance with her?
Barclay Parneta, the club’s chief executive, says playing in the nation’s top hockey league for 15-year-olds means she deserves recognition for her talent. In the U-15s, she had 19 points, including two goals, in 30 games.
Chloe Primerano says she’s good in both areas and loves to copy her game from Duncan Keith. We obviously wish him well in the WHL.
On the other hand, it will not be easy for her to take her place. The current 15-year-old (WHL Draft like this) is 5’8 inches tall and weighs 134 pounds. So it is not the heaviest among the things that will not make its work on the Blue Line easier.
That is why the majority of girls who separate from the home work as nannies.
Is the solution instead to promote women’s hockey in a better way to ensure that more women like Primerano have a high-profile position to grow? After all, playing against men is not always easy.
Talk to Marie-Philippe Pauline, who refused to play for Trois-Rivieres in ECHL…and it’s not because of a lack of talent.
Without wanting to reduce this to the fact that girls should only play with girls, we can wonder if there would be more women who could reach high levels this way, in terms of size. This is the goal after all.

Jean-Francois Hoully on Riley Kidney:
“We’re not sure yet if he’ll join the group. I know he’s been eliminated. If he comes, it will be a great experience for him to be in. We’ll see if he comes.”Tweet embed

New contract in Columbus.
Team Blue Jackets have signed G Joonas Korpisalo’s contract for a one-year, $1.3 million extension. A big show of faith with a 28-year-old coming out of a tough season (7-11-0, 4.15, 0.877) and major hip surgery in April.
Corbesalo is set to become a UFA for the first time this summer.#CBJ
