Today in the NWHL we had two more announcements for the Buffalo Beauts and Connecticut Whale.
First up for the Beauts they signed Amherst, NY native Emma Ruggiero for the 2019-20 season.
Ruggiero, Buffalo State’s captain and leading scorer, has spent her entire life in the Buffalo hockey scene. This will be Ruggiero’s first season with the Beauts and in the NWHL.
Then for the Whale they would re-sign another core player from last season as Sarah Hughson will be returning for the 2019-20 season.
Hughson, who is entering her second season with both the Whale and in the NWHL, played in 12 games last season for the Whale.
All players will partake in the 50 percent cut of revenue from league sponsorship and media deals. Plus they will also receive 15 percent of revenue from apparel sold with their name on it.
TXHT will continue to provide NWHL coverage as more signings are announced.
