TORONTO – The Professional Women’s Hockey League unveiled its championship trophy, The Walter Cup, on Thursday, designed by the luxury brand Tiffany & Co.

The sterling silver trophy features an angular design inspired by ice, weighing about 35 pounds, standing 24 inches tall and over 13 inches wide, with a removable base for the engraved name of each year’s winning team.

In its inaugural season, the six-team league named the trophy after the Walter family in honour of their philanthropic efforts.

Los Angeles Dodgers owner Mark Walter, the PWHL’s primary financial backer, launched the league by buying out the rival Premier Hockey Federation in June.

The PWHL features teams in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, New York, Boston, and Minnesota.

The regular season will conclude on May 5 with the top four teams in the standings advancing to the playoffs. Both the semifinals and the championship final will be best-of-five series.
