As part of their preparations for the 2019-20 NWHL season, the Boston Pride will play Northeastern on Sept. 28 at 2 p.m. The game will be held at Matthews Arena on the campus of Northeastern.
The Pride roster includes former Northeastern players McKenna Brand, Lauren Kelly, and Tori Sullivan.
“Going back to Northeastern with Lauren, Tori, and the Pride to take on our alma mater is something I’m really looking forward to,” said Brand. Added Kelly, “Northeastern not only helped me grow as a hockey player but as a person and I think it’s special when we get to go back and play against some of the same players we used to call teammates. I know it’ll be a fun and competitive game and a fantastic opportunity for the Pride to prepare for the upcoming NWHL season, and for the Huskies to prepare to defend their back-to-back Hockey East championships.”
“We are excited to be playing the Boston Pride again this year in an exhibition game,” said Northeastern head coach Dave Flint. “It will provide us with a valuable experience against a strong opponent to help prepare us for the upcoming season.”
