“It is an honor to find myself back home with the Pride during this incredibly pivotal time for the NWHL and women’s hockey,” said Moore in the release. She went to say she believes that Arnone and the staff in place can create a “blueprint for an independently owned and operated NWHL club. We will create an industry standard for professional women’s hockey.”

Moore has been involved in the league since the beginning first as the general manager of the Pride for two seasons then moving to be the NWHL’s Deputy Commissioner and director of player development in May 2017.

In that role, Moore worked with all five teams on recruiting players and staff. She also helped build the league’s relationship with colleges as well as organize special events and youth initiates.

She is also the director of women’s and girls’ hockey for the East Coast Wizards.

Moore played college hockey at Brown University and for the Boston Blades. She also was an assistant coach at Harvard University and has been a skills coach with USA Hockey National Development Camps.
