- Tickets for the NWHL’s pre-season games are on sale! Unlike my prediction of free, the tickets cost $5 USD, except for the Mercyhurst games, which are free. Additionally, it turns out that the final East Coast Wizards teams that the Pride will play are both boys teams– the U16, and the U18 teams.
- Keep on scrolling past the pre-season games, and you’ll see that single game tickets for the NWHL go on sale September 24th, 12:01 AM Eastern! That’s tomorrow.

- Lexie Hoffmeyer is not playing this year! The CWHL’s twitter presence will be the worse for it. She will be coaching, not sure where yet, and will also still be involved with the Furies in some capacity.
As the saying goes, “Those who can’t play, coach”… Soooo guess who made an extremely difficult decision and will be coaching this season. — Lex Hoff (@LexHoff) September 20, 2015
- Kacey Bellamy signed with the Boston Pride! #CalledIt
- We’ve noticed a lack of international faces at a lot of the NWHL’s first practices so far, and now we know why at least one of them is missing! Lyudmilla Belyakova, a forward for the New York Riveters, wasn’t in attendance because of her commitment to her national team. She was playing exhibition games for the Russian National Team against Team Japan and Team Germany.
