The Secret Dream Gap Tour is heading to St. Louis.

The Professional Women’s Hockey Players Association announced Thursday that in partnership with the NHL’s St. Louis Blues it will be making its next stop in St. Louis with New Hampshire and Minnesota facing off on April 11 at the Centene Community Ice Center and at the Enterprise Center the following day.

“Since moving to St. Louis recently, I have been blown away by the eagerness and drive to grow the sport of hockey – for men and women,” said PWHPA player Alex Cavallini in a press release.

“The St. Louis Blues hosting the PWHPA Secret Dream Gap Tour speaks volumes to how much they believe in our game and our mission of creating a viable, sustainable women’s professional hockey league. There’s nothing better than having visible, powerful women role models, on and off the ice, showing the next generation they, too, can dream big.”

The PWHPA had previously held stops in New York and Chicago on this year’s tour.

The St. Louis events will be the final U.S.-based competitions before PWHPA players head to international camps ahead of the world championships in May.
