It’s time for Episode 43 — the Meghan Huertas Special — of your favorite NWHL-centric podcast! This week Erica and Mike break down the first three games of the 2018-19 NWHL season which featured two wins from the Minnesota Whitecaps and a win from the Buffalo Beauts.

We also discuss the Buffalo Beauts’ most recent signing, the first NWHL Player of the Week (as well as our alternate picks), some news and notes from around the league, as well as our takeaways from the NWHL’s opening weekend. Should Riveters fans be worried after the defending Isobel Cup Champs dropped their first two games of the season? Should Whale fans be losing sleep after their team registered just 10 shots in their home opener? Give a listen to this week’s show to find out what we think!

NOTE: At the time of this recording, Katerina Mrázová had not been announced as joining the team. Later, Erica Ayala reported she was with the Connecticut Whale for Thursday’s practice.

Also, Kelly Schultz is working alongside Alexis Pearson (not Peterson, for shame). My bad Alexis, signed Erica!
