This week on the Founding 4 Podcast Mike and Erica talk about the latest comings and goings in the NWHL. Can you believe the preseason is already here? Let’s talk some hockey.
The Boston Pride re-signed former NWHL Goaltender of the Year Brittany Ott to join Katie Burt and Madison Litchfield in the goal crease. The Metropolitan Riveters brought back a veteran of their own by re-signing Erika Lawler, securing their center depth. But the Connecticut Whale out-did everyone this past week by signing four players, including NWHL trailblazers Elena Orlando and Jordan Brickner.
In addition to half a dozen players signing new one-year contracts, we learned that the Riveters have finally found their head coach! Mike and Erica talk about Randy Velischek, the coaching staffs around the league, the Buffalo Beauts’ pursuit of a new forward, and the NWHL opening its doors up to partners outside of the NHL.
Oh, and we get to a few mailbag questions, too! Will Pittsburgh be the next home of an NWHL team, or will it be Detroit? What will the league look like in the next two or three years? We talk about all of this and more this week on the Founding 4 Podcast!
