Your 2021 Connecticut Whale!



Fins Up fellow Whale fans! Welcome to your website: Cetacean Nation! Here we try to augment the coverage of and news about, our Connecticut Whale, the most exciting team in hockey. We love our Pod Amazings and the amazing league they play in, the National Women’s Hockey League. The Whale  have now concluded play in NWHL Season Six, and we can’t wait to see what exciting hockey Season Seven will bring!  Our player input is our main feature, along with NWHL and Whale news as it pertains to our team and fans, both on and off the ice. Especially in the  ”off seasons” we strive to rep the players, and the Whale as best we can. The Whale bring us such exciting  skillful, gritty and inspiring hockey as they skate through each NWHL season. The citizens Cetacean Nation wants to support them year round, introduce new fans, and help get everyone ready for the upcoming Season of the Whale.

 Well the First Take is that the Cetacean Nation initiative is at an end.. Due to medical issues which will require our full attention moving forward we can no longer engage as we have for the last few years. It was an amazing ride with the Most Exciting Team in Hockey! Both entertaining and enriching for us, and we hope you had fun along the way with us too.

Our Hot Take is that the Whale, the NWHL and the sport are in a good place. . Still a lot of work to do, but the path lies before us, and we are already at the trailhead. It will be a treat to watch how things continue to develop, and to realize you were all part of the show, if you were a supporter of the league.

Our Final Take is to thank all of the Amazing players who took the time to share their stories with us for you. Their content and insight is all that really drove this, and they drove it above and beyond. And thanks as well to the.families, fans, coaches, front office and staff, and those whose hockey stories included a lot of Pod in them, even if they never wore the green blue & white. All of their interviews will remain up on the website for the near future as well.

But even though our Cetacean Nation entity is no more, the citizens of Cetacean Nation are here forever. And we will always be part of you in cheering on our Pod. So here’s to Season Seven, The Year of the Whale!  Fins Up Forever!
