Boston chose BU Sammy Davis with the top pick at the NWHL Draft | Instant News

The Boston Pride voted for Boston University Sammy Davis to advance first in the NWHL Draft on Tuesday night.

The women’s professional hockey league is on its sixth season.


Pride gets a pick top from Toronto’s expansion in the previous trading hours to get Davis. The 23-year-old city star has 17 goals and 24 assists for Terriers this season.

Boston also received Toronto’s fifth round election this year in return for this year’s Pride first round election, and the first and second round election in 2021.

Clarkson’s attacker, Kayla Friesen, was chosen as number 2 by the Pope of Connecticut, and Maine goalkeeper Carly Jackson was third in the Buffalo Beauts.

Friesen scored 10 goals and 20 assists in his only season with the Golden Knights after moving from St. Cloud. Jackson 12-11-7 with 1.90 goals-against average this season for Black Bear.

Metropolitan Riveters took defender Yale Saroya Tiner in 4th place, followed by Minnesota Whitecaps who chose Minnesota Golden Gophers forward Alex Woken. Toronto made Robert Morris forward Jaycee Gebhard as the franchise’s first draft pick to finish the first round.

The National Hockey League began playing in 2015. Boston (2016), Buffalo (2017), Metropolitan (2018) and Minnesota (2019) have won the first four league championships.

The 2020 Isobel Cup final between Boston and Minnesota was postponed last month due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
