On Wednesday afternoon, PWHL Boston signed a free agent from PWHL Minnesota, defender Emma Greco to a year-one deal. She was a part of the Walter Cup inaugural season roster and will now help Boston make a push to the finals once more.

“Emma is a steady, reliable defenseman with proven experience in this league. She was a part of Minnesota’s Walter Cup winning team, so she knows what it takes to win in the playoffs,” said PWHL Boston General Manager Danielle Marmer. “Her hard defending and simple puck-moving style is an identity we’re excited to add to our D-corps.”

In her first season with PWHL Minnesota, Greco managed to hold an 8+ rating through the regular season, without getting herself on a score sheet. She is looking to get her first PWHL point with Boston in the 2024-25 season. Her offensive abilities are not what makes her a good player. She is a good defender who will pair nicely on the second line with Sydney Bard or Jessica Digirolamo.

Before the PWHL, Greco played five pro seasons with the PHF, the NWHL, and the CWHL. Here are her stats from those five seasons:

2017-18 (PHF, Connecticut Whale): Recorded 2 assists in 6 games.

2018-19 (CWHL, Toronto Furies): Recorded 3 assists in 23 games.

She was a member of the PWHPA in 2019-20.

2020-21 (NWHL, Toronto Six “A”): Recorded 1 assist in 6 games.

2022-23 (PHF, Toronto Six): Recorded 5 points (1-4) in 24 games.

Greco does not put herself on the scoresheet as much as the other defenders, but her defensive abilities will make up for that. A strong and flexible defender who will back up the Green Monster next season.

Here is what the newest Bostonian has to say about her contract:

“I am excited and grateful to be joining PWHL Boston,” says Greco. “I know Boston is a sports city with incredible fans and I’m looking forward to seeing them at the home opener.”

Greco was the first player outside of the Boston organization to sign with the team this season. She will leave her Walter Cup-winning team to help Boston win their first Walter cup.
