How impactful will the addition of Thunstrom be for the offense?
One of the major additions to the Boston Pride is an impact player in Allie Thunstrom. During her 4 seasons with the Minnesota Whitecaps, she played in 64 games for the Whitecaps, tallying 47 goals and adding 19 assists for 66 points. Also, she is a Isobel Cup Champion during the 2018-19 season, and also earned the MVP award in 2019-20. Thunstrom is also one of the fastest skaters in the PHF, and she’ll bring that speed and goal scoring ability to a potent offense. The question is who will be her line mates, and how will the opposing defenses stop them?
What kind of season is in store for Wenczkowski?
This is now the third season for Taylor Wenczkowski, during her previous two seasons, she has played 27 games. In those games, she has scored 9 times and added 7 assists for 16 points. She really came into her own as an impact player during the playoffs in Florida. During the three games down in Florida, she scored 3 goals, including the Cup clinching goal. She provides great depth scoring that teams need during crunch time. What kind of season is in store for her? She’s done enough to earn more playing time, and much like Thunstrom, you have to wonder who her line mates will be when the season kicks off.
Can the Pride three peat as champions?
Heading into last season, I asked whether or not the Pride were good enough to repeat as Champions. The simple answer was yes. They finished 3rd during the regular season, and came on strong during the playoffs to hoist the trophy for the second time in a row and third time in history. Now, they are looking to three peat, and hoist their 4th trophy in their franchise history. Why is the three peat milestone huge? Firstly, in the realm of women’s hockey, colleges like Middlebury were NESCAC three peat champions, Northeastern three peated Hockey East. I don’t think it’s been done at the professional level in North America. So it would the first time ever, which is huge. But secondly, it would be the first time any hockey team, men’s or women’s, has done it in North America since the New York Islanders won 4 straight Stanley Cups in the 80s.
