The Boston Pride announced on Monday that they have re-signed forward Taylor Wenczkowski to a new, two-year contract. Selected 18th overall (3rd Round) in the 2020 NWHL Draft, the 25-year-old is already a two-time Isobel Cup champion (2021, 2022) and was named MVP of the 2022 Isobel Cup playoffs.
This past season Wenczkowski played in all 24 games for the Pride, posting nine points (2g-7a) and now has 25 points (11g-14a) in 51 career regular season games. The University of New Hampshire product had one goal in two postseason games and now has five goals/six points in seven career playoff games for Boston.
“I’m really excited for the opportunity to play in Boston for another two years,” Wenczkowski was quoted as saying in the press release. "The support from the city of Boston truly makes it the best place to play. It is a dream come true being able to play professional hockey every day.”
“The growth of the league since I joined in 2020 has been unbelievable. It’s so awesome to pave the way for young girls coming after us who aspire to play for the Pride or in the PHF one day. I can’t wait to get back to [our home rink] Warrior Ice Arena and play in front of the best fans in the league!”
Wenczkowski is the third signing and the first re-signing announced by the Pride this off-season, joining newcomers Chloé Aurard and Alina Müller as the three-time Isobel Cup champions look to return to the Isobel Cup Final for a fourth time in five seasons. Last season the Pride finished atop the PHF/NWHL standings for the second time in four seasons.
