    Haha I've seen your NWHL related tweets throughout the season, had no idea it was you. Good stuff. I'm no advanced stats buff, but with the small sample size of games it's easy to understand the correlation with the stats. For example, seeing Babstock's differential between expected/actual production.

    Yeah, doing any "real" statistical analysis on the NWHL is hard because the season is so short. Doesn't mean we can't have some fun with it, though.

    Buzz is that the NWHL is expanding to Minnesota and affiliating the Whitecaps with the league.

    Big, big news. This league is gonna go places.

    Can't imagine double-expansion in one off-season but, IMO, sooner and not later, there will be a team in Pittsburgh.

    I read an article not long ago about there being interest in having a team in Detroit. Madison Packer posted it on her Twitter.

    things seem to be looking up and it's really encouraging

    I think they'll pull it off tbh. Looking forward to seeing what gets said today. Don't think it'll be the last expansion announcement this offseason.

    Keep an eye out for postings closer to the beginning of the season. I know they are always looking for volunteer helpers on gameday. It might not be directly with the team like equipment manager, but at least it's being involved in the game?

    Amanda Leveille had an absurd season for Buffalo this year. Running goalie workload and GSAA

    Free Agency opened today. So far the Beauts have re-signed Scamurra.

    15% off merch for the next three days, too... Players get kickback on their items.

    Gonna be some major power shifts in the league this year with the USWNT members returning and Minnesota joining the fray. Riveters need all the firepower they can get :)

    MFW I remember Kessel recorded 18 points in 8 games in the 16-17 season

    I'll never forget the first season, when Boston had at least 5 Olympians on their squad. Rivs got trounced in the first game. can't remember much aside from Brianna Decker abusing the entire team and Packer almost punching a girl in the face

    Stretch is retiring. Not sure if the NWHL is retiring jerseys yet, but if they are, no one should wear 10 for the Riveters ever again.
