Tessa Bonhomme went first overall to Toronto at the CWHL draft.

The Canadian Women’s League held its first entry draft at the Hockey Hall of Fame Thursday, August 12 and THN.com was there for the historical event.

The three Greater Toronto Area teams – Burlington, Brampton and Toronto – drafted their rosters for the 2010-11 season, with Canadian Olympic gold medalist Tessa Bonhomme going first overall to Toronto.

With en eye towards improving parity in the league, the CWHL had a bit of a makeover this off-season. Aside from instituting the entry draft, the league will also feature five teams instead of six, including one new squad in Boston.

Reporter Ryan Dixon caught up with the first overall pick, as well as a few of the CWHL’s other stars.
