Jordan Brickner, an original member of the Connecticut Whale and NWHL, has re-signed with the team for a fifth season.
“I am happy to be able to continue to play the sport that I love,” said Brickner. “I have been a member of the NWHL, specifically the Whale, for all four seasons, and am looking forward to season 5. A lot of positive strides have been made in the offseason so far, and I think it is important to continue building towards more successes.”
Brickner has made her home on the Whale blue line over the past four seasons. In 68 games played, she’s recorded two goals and 21 assists, including 12 helpers in the NWHL’s inaugural season, helping the Whale to a franchise-best 13-5 record that year. Brickner was also selected for the 2017 NWHL All-Star Game in Pittsburgh.
“I take pride in my ability to defend and am personally looking to contribute more in the offensive zone this upcoming season,” said Brickner.
She began her collegiate career at Colgate before transferring to Wisconsin. In 137 collegiate games, she finished with 12 goals and 30 assists. She had a plus-47 mark across her two seasons with the Badgers. In both of her seasons at Wisconsin, she finished as the only Badger to play every game without being whistled for a penalty.
