After a single season for her hometown Pride, Emily Fluke is bound for another team.

Last season was Emily Fluke’s first season representing Boston professionally - and it would appear to be her only one, at least for now: the Bourne native inked a contract with the newest member of the NWHL, the Toronto Six.

Fluke’s only season here in Boston was a boom for her career. She was able to set career highs in points (27), goals (9), and assists (18). In each of her previous two seasons with the Connecticut Whale, Fluke scored only 11 points.

Fluke will join former Boston Blades coach Digit Murphy, who will serve as both head coach and team president for the Six, up in Toronto.

It’s likely that the fact that the NWHL will be playing its entire season in a bubble that will allow for more movement for players than is typical, as players may not feel compelled to have to consider a team’s home city when making a decision.
