The Boston Blades are a professional women’s hockey team that plays in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL). Since beginning play in 2010, the Blades have won the Clarkson Cup as league champions twice, in 2013 and 2015. The Blades were the first US-based team in the circuit.
Moving to the Warrior Ice Arena from the larger Bright-Landry Center may be seen as a step backwards in the Pride’s second season, but the move to a smaller facility has seemed to work for the team. The NWHL has certainly experienced some growing pains in their second season, but the product on the ice is definitely worth a look. In hockey-mad New England, where there is no shortage of hockey to choose from between the professional, college and youth teams in the area, the Pride are beginning to carve out a niche as a “must see” option among local hockey fans.
