On Sunday evening, the Boston Pride and Hilary Knight agreed to a one-year, $20,000 contract for the 2016-2017 season.
“Hilary is an absolute game changer,” general manager Hayley Moore said. “She proved that last season; she rises in the heat of the pressure, and brings energy into the building. Both on and off the ice, Knight pushes boundaries, sets new limits, and inspires those around her. There are lines out the door of young girls who want to see Hilary play, and that’s for a good reason.”
With the co-captain and league's leading scorer back for another year, early bets are on the Pride to repeat their Isobel Cup glory this year. The Pride roster is now at 11, and with the Knight signing confirmed, all the other pieces are likely to fall into place very soon. We'll keep you posted!
