PWHL Boston at the Trade Deadline

Yesterday was the PWHL trade deadline. Before yesterday, there was just one completed trade in the league; this was the Tapani/Cook and Jacques trade back in February. Two trades were completed yesterday before the deadline and announced hours later. One trade was between Ottawa and Montrèal, and the other was between Ottawa and Boston.

Boston received forward Lexie Adzija and the rights to forward Caitrin Lonergan in return for forward Shiann Darkangelo. Adzija was a fan favorite in Ottawa, and she will be dearly missed, but she will bring many good things to Boston, not just on the ice but off the ice as well. Adzija has 8 points in 17 games (5G 3A). Caitrin Lonergan has not signed a standard player agreement yet, she has decided to focus on her off-ice career. She is a two-time Patty Kazmaier finalist. There is no doubt that she will be an important piece of this Boston squad in the future.

Losing Shiann Darkangelo is not ideal for Boston, but both teams could benefit from this move. Darkangelo is a good veteran to have in the locker room, and when she is on her game, she can put up points and contribute.

Boston fans are excited to welcome Lexie and Caitrin to the team. Acquiring these players might give Boston the fight to keep control over that fourth and final playoff spot.
