Canadian Women's Hockey League / CWHL championship was played at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto, Ontario - March 25, 2018. The Thunder franchise made the move to Markham, Ontario this past offseason, previously hailing from Brampton, Ontario (1998 - 2017) where they made two appearances in the Clarkson Cup championship finals in 2012 and 2010.

The Thunder went 3-0 through the Clarkson Cup playoffs after qualifying for the post-season as the fourth and final seed, and earned their place in the championship game after a semi-final upset defeating the defending Clarkson Cup champion Les Canadiennes de Montreal in two straight games during their best-of-three playoff series. The Kunlun Red Star, meanwhile, outlasted the Calgary Inferno in a three-game series which ended in a thrilling triple-overtime contest.

The Thunder open the scoring in the first period, when Laura Fontino got control of a loose puck behind the Red Star net, after a point shot from Nicole Kosta and passed out front to Nicole Brown who got off a quick shot beating the Red Star goalie Raty.

The Red Star tied the game late in the second period on a shot from Zoe Hickel that deflected off her teammate Kelli Stack who was in front of the Thunder net, and past Howe.

In the overtime, Nicole Kosta picks off the puck at the Red Star blue line, drives to the net, and makes a beauty pass thru the defenders skates to Laura Stacey, who scores top shelf over the goalies glove for the championship goal.

Erica Howe, who finished with 17 saves for the Thunder was named Clarkson Cup MVP.
