The Metropolitan Riveters announced one-year deals with two more players out of the college scene, bringing in Lauren Dabrowski and Noemi Neubauerova to join a quickly-growing corps of talent in New Jersey.

Dabrowski joins the blueline out of USPORTS's St. Francis Xavier University, where she produced over a point per game (15 G, 19 A) and was named a first team All-Canadian this past season with the X-Women. She also has some NCAA experience over one season with Lindenwood prior to her jump back to Canada.

For her part, Neubauerova spent five seasons in the NCAA with Colgate University and Providence College. She also has extensive international experience as a member of Czechia's national team in both U18s and senior, most recently winning bronze with the Czechs during Worlds back in April. Head coach Venla Hovi emphasized Neubauerova's work ethic and two-way play, evident in her overall stats – while not a huge goal-scorer, it seems like she could play a good bottom-six role, embracing the blend of skill and strength the Rivs are starting to become known for.

Additional details of each contract will not be disclosed.

The Riveters bring their total number of signings up to 15 over the course of free agency thus far. Eight of those 15 are newcomers, including both of Friday's signings.
