Here's one more from the NEHC: https://providence.jwuathletics.com/s...18-19/schedule
The Connecticut Whale have signed Elmira grad and 2018 First Team All-American forward Sarah Hughson. They've also re-signed defender Hanna Beattie, who graduated Williams in 2017 and played 12 games for the Whale last season.
BREAKING: Korea Unified Olympian Randi Griffin & AHCA All-American Sarah Hughson have BOTH signed to the Whale for this upcoming season! On top of that, our very own Hanna Beattie has re-signed as well! Safe to say you can change our address to cloud 9— Connecticut Whale (@CTWhale_NWHL) July 10, 2018

Former SNC goalie Brianna Kelly to join Aurora coaching staff. Makes a ton of sense as she's an Illinois native and former Chicago Mission player.

Castleton announces their new head coach:
With 68 days before Adrian faces off against River Falls, the Bulldogs are looking for a new head coach. Chad Davis is going to coach D1 RIT.
Their current assistant is Hannah McGowan, a '15 grad going into her second season as a coach. Would be a tough jump to interim, especially when she'd be coaching former teammates...

Despite the fact that it's a great program that should be able to attract top talent, does anyone want to leave their current position at this time of the year? Almost seems like they're destined for a holding pattern this year. Steph Moberg did the same thing at Castleton a few years ago (resigned in mid-August to go to Merrimack) and that really messed up what was a nationally ranked program at that time.
Adrian does have two coaches on campus who might make a better interim than McGowan. Brett Berger, is going into his 5th year coaching Adrian's ACHA D1 women's program. He won the ACHA D1 COTY award in 2017. They also have Shawn Skelly who was an assistant under Davis for one season before moving to be an assistant under Krug last season.
Those two might be their best candidates this late in the game.
