The Boston Pride announced on Wednesday that they have re-signed defender Aneta Tejralová to a new, one-year contract. The 27-year-old has represented Czechia in both the Olympics and the World Championships (two bronze medals) and was named to the All-Star Game last season, her first in the PHF.
This past season Tejralová played in all 24 games for the Pride, recording nine points (2g-7a), and played in both playoff games for Boston, who more times than not this season only dressed five defenders rather than the customary six. She has represented her country internationally since she was 15-years-old, and prior to joining the PHF, she played eight seasons in Russia.
“I am super excited to be part of this organization and playing with my teammates in front of our fans again! I hope that I will be able to help the team as best as I can to achieve the goal of winning the Isobel Cup in the upcoming season,” Tejralová was quoted as saying in the press release.
Tejralová is the fourth signing, and the second re-signing announced by the Pride this off-season, joining returner Taylor Wenczkowski and newcomers Chloé Aurard and Alina Müller as the team looks to return to the Isobel Cup Final for a fourth time in five seasons.
