Hayley Moore Lifting the Isobel Cup as GM of the Boston Pride
BROOKLYN, NY, May 25, 2017 – The National Women’s Hockey League today announced the appointment of Hayley Moore as Deputy Commissioner/Director of Player Development.
In this role, Moore will be the league’s liaison to the four teams for hiring staff, scouting, player development, free agency, trades and the draft. Among her other responsibilities will be game and event scheduling, the development of grassroots women’s hockey programs, and building on the league’s relationships with national governing bodies and collegiate women’s hockey programs.
For the first two years of the NWHL, Moore, 30, served as general manager of the Boston Pride – winners of the Isobel Cup in 2016 and a finalist in 2017. The team had a combined regular season record of 30-4-1 in Moore’s tenure as GM.
“I’m very pleased that Hayley has accepted this important role as deputy commissioner,” said NWHL Commissioner Dani Rylan. “Anyone who has worked with Hayley knows that she’s a star in the sports business – smart, dedicated, passionate, determined. As we continue to build the NWHL, Hayley will be an extremely influential executive.”
Besides her work in the NWHL, Moore is the director of women’s and girls’ hockey for the Boston-based East Coast Wizards. The program has won four national championships in Moore’s three years as director. A four-year player at Brown, Moore was an assistant coach at Harvard from 2012 – 2014. She has been a Skills Coach at USA Hockey National Development Camps in 2014 and 2015 and will be again next month.
“Being part of the NWHL over the last two years has been one of the most powerful experiences of my life,” said Moore, who will remain based out of Boston. “To have the opportunity to work with these incredibly dedicated, professional women and grow the game that I love is a huge honor. The future of our sport is so bright, and I look forward to taking on this new role with the league.”
