As reported by Meg Linehan of Excelle Sports on Thursday evening, the National Women's Hockey League and Commissioner Dani Rylan are facing a lawsuit from one of the League's founding investors. Mike Moran, one of the League's three known investors, is requesting reimbursement for the $184,971.10 he contributed to the League.

According to Excelle,

The NWHL and Rylan have until April 22, 2016 at 5 PM Eastern to either pay Moran’s requested amount or receive a written grant of extension. If neither happens, Moran is expected to file a lawsuit against both the NWHL and Rylan personally by the following Monday for the entirety of his investment, which the letter states to be over $200,000.

Rylan is scheduled to attend the Boston Pride's celebration at Faneuil Hall tomorrow afternoon, which is sure to make the event that much more interesting.
