From a media release:
W NetworkÂ heads into the third period with a brand-new season of fan-favourite Canadian docu-seriesÂ Hockey Wives,Â premiering Wednesday, April 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The nine-episode season offers off-the-ice access to the busy lives of six ambitious women and their pro-hockey husbands. Facing the everyday struggles of balancing families, careers, and personal aspirations, the women must also live with being married to the game. The third season introduces four new faces, plus a look at hockey life in Europe with the show travelling to Austria, Germany, and Russia.
Returning to theÂ Hockey WivesÂ team for her third season, Montrealâ€™sÂ Maripier MorinÂ and her fiancÃ©Â Brandon PrustÂ face a dramatic year. After getting engaged last season, Brandon was traded to the Vancouver Canucks and later became a free agent this past summer.Â Now he might have the chance to play abroad, but that means the pair must endure the stress of a long-distance relationship. Returning from season one isÂ Emilie Blum, who, newly pregnant, must prepare for the possibility of living a solo parent life asÂ Jonathonâ€™s career takes him abroad to the KHL in Russia.
Viewers get behind-the-scenes access to some of the most high-profile players in professional hockey through new cast membersÂ Catherine LaFlammeÂ â€“ married to Pittsburgh Penguinsâ€™Â Kris LetangÂ â€“ andÂ Martine Auclair VlasicÂ â€“ married to San Jose Sharksâ€™Â Marc-Edouard Vlasic. The season sees Catherine launch her new childrenâ€™s clothing line and support Kris as his team pursues winning consecutive Stanley Cup trophies. Meanwhile, Martine helps Marc-Edouard navigate his booming career, including celebrating his World Cup of Hockey victory together.
New toÂ Hockey WivesÂ but familiar with long-distance relationships,Â Erica LundmarkÂ manages to keep her career and three children together while her husbandÂ Jamie LundmarkÂ plays for the KAC in Austria. Also new to the series isÂ Vanessa Vandal, who returns to St. Louis after her boyfriendÂ David PerronÂ is traded back to the St. Louis Blues. She will face even more change after deciding to go back to school and finding out sheâ€™s pregnant again.
Hockey WivesÂ is produced by Bristow Global Media Inc. in association with W Network. Executive Producers are Julie Bristow President & CEO Bristow Global Media, Megan Sanchez-Warner, and Christie Callan Jones.
