BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Beauts today announced the team has agreed to terms with forward Hayley Scamurra.
Scamurra (5’8”, 161 lbs., 12/14/1994) won the NWHL Rookie of the Year award during her first full season in the league in 2017-18. In 14 games for the Beauts last season, Scamurra tied for the team lead with 14 points (7+7) and played in the NWHL All-Star game, where she earned MVP honors.
“We’re excited to add a local player that has proven she can be a star in our league,” said General Manager Nik Fattey. “Hayley was a key component in our offense last season and is extremely hard to play against. She has many of the qualities that we are looking for in a top player: she works hard every shift, has skill, and is a great teammate.”
The Williamsville, New York native and Nichols School graduate made her NWHL debut in 2016-17, when she scored one goal in one regular-season game and added four points (1+3) in two playoff games to help the Beauts capture the Isobel Cup. During her collegiate career, Scamurra recorded 111 points (39+72) in 123 games for Northeastern University (Hockey East) and finished her career tied for 10th among the school’s all-time assists leaders.
