The NWHL announced yesterday that Emily Field has re-signed with the Boston Pride for the 2017-18 season. Field joined the Pride in the NWHL’s inaugural season and this will be her 3rd season with the team. As we mentioned earlier this week when Lexi Bender re-signed with the Pride, Boston is losing a number of players to the Olympics next season and the players that are sticking around in the NWHL will likely see increased ice time and responsibility.
Field, a forward, scored 138 career points in her four years as an Eagle. She graduated in 2015 and joined the Pride that fall. She picked up 7 points in 22 games as a rookie, and won the first ever Isobel Cup championship with Boston. Field played in 15 regular season games last year, and recorded 3 goals and 3 assists. All 4 Eagles that played for Boston last season are now set for next year: Bender and Field will remain with the Pride, Blake Bolden is heading to Switzerland to play for HC Lugano, and Alex Carpenter will be a member of the 2018 USA Olympic Team.
