NWHL’s Pride Will Move to Warrior Ice Arena at Boston Landing
The Boston Pride have a new home.
The reigning Isobel Cup champions of the National Women’s Hockey League will play their home games at the Warrior Ice Arena at the Boston Landing development starting with the 2016-17 season.
The Pride, led by co-captains Hilary Knight and Brianna Decker, played their inaugural season at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center at Harvard University last year.
“The NWHL and the Boston Pride are very happy to join the new hockey community at Warrior Ice Arena,” Pride GM Hayley Moore, returning for her second season with the team, said in a release. “We’d like to thank NB Development Group for their help in bringing us into the fold for next season.”
The first publicly accessible ice arena constructed in Boston since the days of Bobby Orr, the Warrior Ice Arena will also serve as the Bruins practice facility.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Boston Pride, our second professional team to Warrior Ice Arena and our third to the overall Boston Landing Development,” arena general manager Jay Rourke said. “After their historic first season that culminated with a title win, it will be exciting for local and national fans to watch them in action at our Arena.”
The puck drops on the NWHL’s second season this October.
