Big news today for the Connecticut Whale, as they re-signed their number 1 goalie, Brooke Wolejko. No, this is not an April Fools joke, she will be back with the Whale next season!
Brooke Wolejko has dressed 22 games for the Whale, and has a record of 2-8-1. She holds a 3.62 GAA, while also having a .914 save percentage. In her 2 playoff games, she’s 1-1-0 with a 3.52 GAA and a .909 save percentage.
Though she was not named an All Star this season, or Goalie of the Year, or any of the major NWHL honors, it can not be stated enough how important she is to the Whale. She was definitely the team’s MVP.
Also to note, Wolejko was the third different number 1 starter in the past 3 seasons for Connecticut. With this signing, it will hopefully give the Whale some stability in net moving forward.
TXHT will continue to provide NWHL coverage as more signings and news are announced.
