The New York Riveters of the National Women’s Hockey League announced the signing of Celeste Brown on June 26, 2015. At the beginning of training camp season, Brown was unsure of which team in the NWHL to sign with but after attending all four camps she decided to sign with the Riveters.

Brown attended the Rochester Institute of Technology where she was captain of the women’s hockey team for two seasons.
As a freshman in 2012, Brown helped RIT win their first ever NCAAA Championship by scoring the game winning goal early in the third period. She ended the season with 12 goals and 9 assists. Those numbers would earn Brown a spot on the ECAC West All-Rookie Team. Brown’s spot on the ECAC West All-Rookie Team was also solidified by the fact RIT’s record was 13-0-0 whenever Brown recorded at least one point in a game.
During Brown’s sophomore year RIT made the big leap to Division I hockey. The new division didn’t scare RIT. They would play in the Division 1 tournament at the end of the season.
Brown’s consistent style of play would lead her to have success during the rest of her time at RIT.
The Riveters will benefit from Brown’s leadership and ability to accept change with ease.
