Three ice-times scheduled for NWHL prospects to be evaluated for potential roster spots

Brooklyn, NY – The National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) will conduct a Free Agent Camp for prospective players on May 13 and 14 at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, MA.

The NWHL Free Agent Camp will coincide with the Beantown Draft Classic Showcase for top National Hockey League prospects in the New England area. The NWHL games will be played on Saturday, May 13 at 6:00 pm and on Sunday, May 14 at 9:30 am and 2:00 pm.

The games will serve as opportunities for invited players to be seen and evaluated by the NWHL’s four franchises – the Boston Pride, Buffalo Beauts, Connecticut Whale and New York Riveters – for potential roster spots in the 2017-18 season, which begins in October.

Players interested in being part of the NWHL and the NWHL Free Agent Camp should register here. To be eligible, players must have graduated college or university equivalent.

“We could not be more excited to have the NWHL take part in the First-Ever Beantown Pre-Draft weekend,” said Peter Masters, Beantown Classic Tournament Director.
