Today in the NWHL there were a variety of announcements made today.
Starting off with a special Sponsor announcement as the NWHL has finalized a sponsorship agreement with The Original Chipwich®.
Chipwich will sponsor select intermission activities, receive a significant amount of promotion via social media, and will have additional activations. Revenue from the partnership agreement with Chipwich will be split in half with NWHL players, which will result in additional income in addition to their current salaries for playing.
Then the Metropolitan Riveters announced that Ivo Mocek has been named the new head coach heading into the 2019-20 season.
Mocek, a native of the Czech Republic, spent the bulk of his pro playing career in the Czech Republic, but has been growing as a coach the last 8 years in the New York area. This will mark his first season as a head coach in the NWHL.
However the Riveters would not be done tbere as they also announced that they have signed 2018 NWHL Sixth Overall Draft Pick Kendall Cornine for the 2019-20 season.
Cornine, a New Jersey native, was a standout player for Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) where she would record 38 goals and 26 assists for 68 points in 140 games.
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.
