Meet the new faces of 'Hockey Wives' season 2

Now that the NHL finals have come and gone, our focus turns to a fresh new season of hockey… and the second installment of the companion documentary series Hockey Wives!

Production on the hotly anticipated sophomore season of the W Network’s hit show is already underway and a few new faces are primed and ready to join the team. Toronto singer Keshia Chanté (girlfriend of Philadeliphia Flyers goalie Ray Emery) has made the draft, along with the wife of Montreal Canadiens defenseman Mike Weaver, Rhianna, who star alongside vets Noureen DeWulf, Kodette LaBarbera, Tiffany Parros, Maripier Morin and Martine Forget. More cast members will be announced in the coming months.

Since viewers last checked in with their favourite off-ice captains, Noureen has welcomed her first child, son Bodhi, with husband Ryan Miller, and just this week Maripier and her longtime partner Brandon Prust announced their engagement.

Hello! Canada caught up with Noureen, who tells us that she had such a great experience filming the debut season that suiting up for season two was a no-brainer. “The good thing about Hockey Wives is that the producers are happy to follow me along in the things that I’m doing. I’m able to keep up with my own life and let the cameras tag along,” she says. “I’m not really creating things for the show.” The Anger Management star also reveals that her three-month-old son will feature in the new season because, as Noureen shares, “He’s the number one thing in my life right now.”
