The Toronto Furies are a professional women's ice hockey team that plays in Toronto, Ontario. Most of the players from the inaugural season in 2010-11 were players from the former Toronto Aeros franchise. The team has played in the Canadian Women's Hockey League since its inaugural 2007-08 season. The team adopted the name "Furies" after the 2011 Clarkson Cup. The decision behind naming the franchise Furies was featured on an episode of History Television's program What's In a Name? (original air date: September 12, 2011).[1] Players voted on one of five names suggested by fans. The five names that fans suggested included: the Toronto Force, Toronto Tornadoes, Toronto Snipes, Toronto Furies and the Toronto Vamps.

The Toronto Furies play their home games at the MasterCard Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The club would capture the 2014 Clarkson Cup championship.

History[edit]

Two Furies players became the fourth and fifth women to play 150 career games in 2013-14. On November 16, 2013, Kristy Zamora reached the milestone. On November 23, 2013, a 4-2 victory over Brampton provided Meagan Aarts with her 150th game.

During the 2013-14 CWHL season, there were a handful of milestones that the Furies reached. On February 9, 2014, a victory against the defending Clarkson Cup champion Boston Blades provided Furies goaltender Sami Jo Small with the 60 victory of her career. Of note, she becomes the first CWHL goaltender to reach the 60 wins plateau.[2] A March 8 contest against the Brampton Thunder resulted in Meagan Aarts earning the 100 point in her CWHL career.[3]
