In a week full of General Manager hirings in the NWHL, the Boston Pride will retain their GM from the 2015-16 season.
Hayley Moore returning as GM of the Boston Pride is an auspicious first step for the Isobel Cup champions to build on the success of their first season.

The Boston Pride had quite the successful 2015-16 season. They finished the regular season with the best record in the league and then went on to win the first ever Isobel Cup in the finals.
The Pride played in the first ever women’s Winter Classic tying the CWHL’s Les Canadiennes, 1-1.
After the success of the inaugural season, we look to continue our momentum and carry on the winning traditions of Boston’s professional sports teams.
