Draft Pick Signs For Whale

Some more news coming out of Danbury this week. The Connecticut Whale have signed their 5th round draft pick Maddie Bishop for Season 6.

Here is the profile on her, written on draft night:

3 (27) – Connecticut* (Acquired from Riveters) – F Maddie Bishop, Sacred Heart University

Maddie Bishop is from Wethersfield, Connecticut. She played 4 years of college hockey at Sacred Heart University. In her senior season, she was named captain of her team. In her 4 years, she scored 32 goals and added 56 assists for a total of 88 points. Which is good for 8th all time in the program’s history.

*Pick acquired from the Marina Sorokina trade.

The 13th forward that the Whale have signed this off-season will join a very impressive and re-vamped forward core that has been built.

Congratulations and welcome to the league!
