News from the Pod today as original NWHL defender Elena Orlando has re-signed with the Whale, returning for her sixth season, and her fifth with the Whale.
This past season with the Whale, she saw a career high in points, with 3 assists in the 24 games that she played. She was also third on the team in terms of blocked shots with 26 recorded. Also, my favorite stat, cause I play center, she has taken 3 faceoffs this season, she won 2 of them and lost only 1.
She was named an NWHL All Star this season, getting to participate in the festivities in Boston. She played for Team Packer, along with her teammate Grace Klienbach. She took part in the hardest shot competition.
With this signing, it gives the Pod their veteran defensive presence on the back end. Also, it gives the team one of it’s best shot blockers, and puck moving defenders back for another season!
TXHT will continue to provide NWHL coverage as more signings and news are announced.
