The Pride have signed 5 more players and near a complete roster.

With yesterday’s signing of RPI graduate Lovisa Selander the Boston Pride have now signed enough players to field a game day roster with a total of 9 forwards, 6 defenders and 2 goalies. In addition to Selander this past week the Pride have signed Marisa Raspa and Whitney Renn both fellow Engineers from RPI, along with Victoria Hanson of Boston University and Brianna Mastel of Harvard.

Selander finished last season carrying the Engineers into the ECAC playoffs while setting the all-time NCAA saves record. She is also a native of Sweden whom she represented in the most recent iterations of the World Championships and 4 Nations Cup.

Renn joins the Pride after a year of playing professionally in Austria where she scored 15 points in 20 games.

Raspa already a resident of Boston working for Ernst and Young will be joining the Pride after a year off from her collegiate career.

Hanson is a MA native and a Terrier alumni, she spent a year professionally in Germany after graduation but returns to professional hockey after a season off.

Mastel comes to the Pride after completing her career for the Crimson amassing 40 points in 128 games. She was a member of the US U18 team that took Silver inn 2012, along with three youth national championships with Assabet Valley.

While most salary information has not been shared the minimum cap hit with known salaries included for the Pride is at 60% with the 17 players on the roster. As a result they will likely have to be frugal with filling the remaining roster spots assuming many already signed players signed for at least a little more than the minimum salary.
