The Toronto Six have announced their official roster heading into the Lake Placid bubble to begin the 2021 NWHL season. Led by team captain Shiann Darkangelo, the 20-person lineup is set to play their first game in franchise history this Saturday at 1pm against the Metropolitan Riveteers.

Playing out of Herb Brooks Arena, the Toronto Six lineup will be tested early and often with five games over eight days to kick off their inaugural campaign. Notable players to crack the opening lineup include the leadership team of Darkangelo alongside alternate captains Emma Greco and Emma Woods, second-round pick Amy Curlew, and two-time NWHL all-star Emily Fluke who put up 27 points in 23 games last season for the Boston Pride.
With a lineup that has blended experience alongside some new faces to the league, the Six will look to avoid those expansion team blues and make a name for themselves right out of the gate.
