Hockey Wives premieres Wednesday, March 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on W Network. The series delivers a rare opportunity for fans to meet ten sexy, accomplished â€œcaptainsâ€ off the ice and explores the meaning of being married to the game. With an exclusive look into the high-stakes lives of WAGs (wives and girlfriends) of the NHLÂ®, the series reveals that it takes an incredible woman to manage fulfilling personal careers and stick handle life off of the ice with some of todayâ€™s top pro athletes. There are incredible perks to being a hockey wife, but, make no mistake, balancing the pressure of trades, relentless travel, long periods of separation, injury, retirement and living for the game takes an extraordinary and self-sufficient woman. Though they are based in cities all over North America, the wives cross paths throughout the course of the regular NHL season and are deeply affected by one another. From wives who are new to the league, to those whose partners are Stanley Cup winning superstars or entering retirement, these women form a team of their own, supporting and encourage one another through personal and professional highs and lows.
Produced by Bristow Global Media Inc. in association with W Network, the highly-anticipated eight-part series will air on W Network. Executive Producers are Julie Bristow President & CEO Bristow Global Media and Claire Adams, Head of Content, Bristow Global Media and Megan Sanchez-Warner. John MacDonald is the Vice President of Television and Head of Womenâ€™s and Family Television for Corus Entertainment.

Though I HATE HATE HATE reality shows like Real Housewives, The Bachelor, Honey Boo Boo, etc., the sociologist and hockey fan in me wants to check this out. I admittedly really liked the short-lived CBC series MVP which was a fictional look at the lives of hockey wives.
I was trying to think of the name of that show – MVP. I admit to some curiosity of this one because of the hockey angle but I have a bad feeling it will make me want to spork my eyes out.
Probably. I have never understood the appeal of “Reality Dramas”, especially the ones aimed at female viewers. My husband’s favourite shows are male-skewing “Reality Dramas” such as Gold Rush, Timber Kings, Swamp People and Deadliest Catch, all of which I find okay to watch because there’s some poignant drama and events that unfold are grittier and I find the settings more familiar. If a reality drama was to be aimed at me, it would need to be about real women and more along the lines of a realistic documentary a la The Week the Women Went or that one that everyone in a town went on a 100 mile diet (I can’t remember what it was called).
