Boston Pride acquire rights to Alex Carpenter

Alex Carpenter AND Kendall Coyne? Everyone else should just quit now.

What witchcraft did Hayley Moore use on the New York Riveters to make them give up their first overall pick? We'll probably never know, but we're very glad it worked.

As you may know, Carpenter played her collegiate hockey for the Boston College Eagles, where she scored 279 points in points (134-145) in 150 games and won the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award following her junior year. During that season, she scored a program-record 81 points in 37 games, which was a tie for 15th most in a single season in Division I women's hockey. In the 2014 Olympics, she scored a team-high four goals.

Most recently, she scored the game-winning goal in overtime for Team USA in the IIHF Women's World Championship gold medal game. In exchange for her rights, the Pride traded 15th overall pick Miye D'Oench to the Riveters. New York will also receive $2,000 towards their salary cap in keeping with the league's draft tax bylaws.

With the last two Patty Kazmaier winners and, presumably, Hilary Knight and Brianna Decker on the Pride's roster, the rest of the league should probably just hang up their skates now.
