Photo Gallery: looking back at the first NWHL season

16 photos from the 2015-16 season

It is hard to believe the puck dropped on the NWHL exactly four years ago. In honor of their birthday, I took a look into my archives to find my favorite photos from that season. Obviously, its fairly Boston-centric because that’s where I live but it also includes the first All Star game in Buffalo.
