Women’s hockey booming in Boston

The NWHL’s founder and commissioner is former Northeastern University hockey player Dani Rylan. The key difference between the NWHL and CWHL is the Pride’s league is guaranteeing a $10,000 minimum season salary for all players, while the Canadian league just covers travel and expenses for players. The NWHL also schedules its games entirely for Saturdays, Sundays, and Monday winter holidays, to help enable players to work regular weekday jobs that can complement hockey.
