Today in the NWHL there were three new signings announced as we get closer to the 2019-20 season.
First we have the Connecticut Whale signing goaltender Sonjia Shelly to a one year deal.
Shelly, recently completed at St. Lawrence University, completed her senior season with a 2.16 GAA, a .912 save percentage, and with 4 shutouts. This will be Shelly’s first season in the NWHL and with the Whale.
Then the Minnesota Whitecaps re-signed forward Meaghan Pezon for the 2019-20 season.
Pezon, returning for her second season, will be looking to help the Whitecaps with their continued success for the 2019-20 season. Pezon played in 10 games last season with the Whitecaps.
Then the Metropolitan Riveters signed goaltender Sam Walther for the 2019-20 season.
Walther, an Annapolis, MD native, will be entering her second season in the NWHL, and first with the Riveters. Last season Walther played 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.
