The Boston Pride of the NWHL and Emily Field have agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth $11,000. In 18 games with the Pride last season, Field scored four goals and seven points. The deal was announced by general manager Hayley Moore on Friday, who had this to say about Field:

“Emily Field is a player who will surprise you in an instant, but she is a very good at doing the little things consistently to put other players in a great spot,” Moor said. She’s an incredible teammate and person and we are lucky to have (her) in Boston.”
Field played in every single regular season, and post-season game last season with Boston, helping her team win the first ever Isobel Cup. Field also earned her first NWHL All-Star honors last season.
Field also recently graduated from Boston College in 2015, where she had an incredible collegiate career. In four seasons with the Screaming Eagles, Field accumulated 139 points, including a 16 goal, 45 points campaign in her sophomore season, and a 29 point season in her senior year that included a career high plus/minus rating of plus-28.
“I’m very excited to be back in Boston again this year,” Field said. “I had such a great experience playing for the Pride and Coach Bobby Jay last year. I’m looking forward to picking up where we left off.”
The Boston Pride will look to pick up right where they left off last season, and re-signing Field was a good move to ensure that continued success.
