After winning the Isobel Cup with the Boston Pride during the NWHL’s inaugural season, Corrine Buie is joining the Buffalo Beauts for the 2016-17 season. She signed a one-year, $13,000 deal with the club, they announced Tuesday.
“I’m excited for what the second season of the NWHL will hold,” Buie said in a statement. “The first year was amazing, and it’s just going to get better. I’m really excited to be joining the Beauts in September.”
Last season the Edina, Minn.-native scored three goals and seven points in 18 contests and skated in all four postseason games for the Pride as they swept through the playoffs to win the first-ever Isobel Cup Championship.
“Corinne comes to Buffalo after winning the Isobel Cup with Boston,” said Beauts general manager Ric Seiling. “She’s a proven winner that skates well, handles the puck and knows how to compete.”
She is just the third player who participated in the inaugural NWHL season that will be transferring teams, though plenty of new faces will be joining each team’s roster, and some players have not been offered new contracts.
Her signing comes as the league winds down the free agency period, which will close on July 31.
