Eagles in the Pros: 2017-18 NWHL Recap

Now that the season is over, let’s check in on how our Eagles did this year

FloHockey: Women's Ice Hockey-Quinnipiac at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Lexi Bender (Boston Pride): Bender had a quieter season this year than she did as a rookie, but still saw significant ice time and recorded 22 shots. She was also the Pride’s winner of the NWHL Foundation Award, which is given to a player that exhibits positive qualities on and off the ice and works to help grow the game of hockey.

Emily Field (Boston Pride): Field had the best season of her NWHL career in her third year with the Pride. She was second on the team in goals (5), assists (7), and points (12).Her points total doubled from last season, when she only recorded 6 points.

Kaliya Johnson (Boston Pride): Johnson is the type of defender that doesn’t always pick up big numbers for the stats sheet, but plays a steady game. She had 2 regular season assists and 1 post-season assist this season, and played in every game after missed a couple games due to injury in her first pro season.

Meagan Mangene (Boston Pride): Mangene set a personal NWHL best this season (her third in the league) with 2 goals. She continues to be a versatile player who can fill in anywhere she is needed (except goalie, she hasn’t had to step in there yet!)

Haley Skarupa (Boston Pride): Skarupa played 5 games for the Pride this season before getting called back up to Team USA. In that time she picked up 5 points - 2 goals and 3 assists. Skarupa then won a gold medal with Team USA at the Olympics. NBD.

Dana Trivigno (Boston Pride): Trivigno played 13 games in her first season with the Pride and second in the NWHL. Trivigno recorded 8 points (3 G, 5 A) and 24 PIM this season.
