NWHL releases complete schedule, will feature multiple neutral site games

New, comments

With some minor changes for convenience, it’s looking like a good year for the NWHL again

OurSportsCentral.com

The NWHL and the NWHLPA have agreed to a schedule!

As per usual, the four main teams from Boston, New York, Connecticut and Buffalo will once again be hitting the ice, but with special tweaks in lieu of the National Team requirements that are usually placed on many of their athletes, such as the Isobel Cup being pushed back to accomidate. How nice!

Some Changes:

  • Multiple Neutral Site Games: This is described in their press release as a way to gauge fan interest in places they haven’t yet placed a team and come up with some candidates for expansion, with a plan to pick up at least one of these markets sometime in 2018 (or at least, that’s how I read it).
  • Schedule moved up a couple weeks to allow for National Team play: The Isobel Cup will be handed to the winner of the NWHL before March 19th, as to allow the athletes to compete in the World Championships next spring.
  • The Pride will be playing in Warrior Ice Arena this year: Brighton stand up!

And with that out of the way, here is your Boston Pride home schedule!
