3 Questions:

Can the Boston Pride repeat as Champions?

Since the National Women’s Hockey League started in 2015 to the now Premier Hockey Federation in 2021, there have been 4 different champions. The Boston Pride became the first team to win the Isobel Cup twice; however, no team has ever won it back to back. The Pride have most of their team returning for another run at the Cup, do they possess the firepower and the goalie strength to repeat?

Who will step up to be the Number 1 goalie?

Lovisa Selander posted a 1.47 GAA and a .947 Save Percentage in 7 regular season games, while also posting a 2.50 GAA and a .909 Save Percentage in route to an Isobel Cup. While returning to the Pride is former number 1 goalie, Katie Burt. In her 16 games with the Pride, she posted a 2.26 GAA with a .920 Save Percentage. Both goalies have put up great stats, and both deserve to start, it will be very interesting to see how Head Coach Paul Mara will split the tandem in net.

How will Sammy Davis’ sophomore campaign turnout?

It’s worrisome for some players heading into their second year, as they don’t want to fall into the “sophomore slump.” The 2020 first overall pick by the Boston Pride had a rather impressive rookie year. Where she was fifth on the team in points (5 total) and the leading scorer (4 goals) for the Pride in just 7 regular season games. With a 20 game schedule upcoming, will her roll on the team get expanded, leading to more scoring opportunities?
