While the Boston Bruins are off to a hot start, DYK that Boston is also home to a professional women’s hockey team?
Boston Pride, founded in 2015, was one of four charter franchises of the Premier Hockey Federation, the official league of professional women’s hockey (think: NHL). The Pride has skated its way to the PHF playoffs every year they’ve existed and has already won three Isobel Cups in 2016, 2021, and 2022.
Named after Lady Isobel Gathorne-Hardy — one of the first women to play hockey and the daughter of Lord Stanley, the namesake of the NHL’s Stanley cup — the Isobel Cup is the PHF’s championship trophy.
The Pride’s home opener is Saturday, Nov. 5 against the Connecticut Whale. You can catch their games at Warrior Ice Arena, aka the practice facility for the Boston Bruins. 🏒
