=================

The Blades’ top goal scorer last year will be back.

The Boston Blades announced today that forward Megan Myers will be returning to the team for at least the next two seasons.

 “I couldn’t be happier to sign my new contract with the Boston Blades,” said Myers. “Not only to play more hockey, but to do so with my amazing teammates.”

Myers scored four goals 17 games with the Blades last year. She also notched three assists, putting her in a tie for the team’s point leader with line-mate Erin Kickham.

That line, centered by Assistant Captain Kristina Brown, was the team’s most productive in a very challenging season. Despite the difficulties, Myers explained that the decision to return was an easy one.

“Our record didn’t show the hard work and dedication each one of us put in last season,” she said. “I believe if we continue to grow, value team chemistry and work hard that we will do better in the win-loss column next season.”

 Myers was one of the few returning players from the 2014-15 Clarkson Cup winning team, where she earned two assists in 12 games. With more ice-time, she stepped up, both on and off the ice.

“We are thrilled to keep Megan Myers on the Boston Blades roster for next season,” said Boston Blades General Manager Krista Patronick. “Myers is the type of player who does all that is asked of her and more. She brings energy to the locker room and has stepped up as a leader. I’m excited to watch her continue to grow into that role.”

Myers hails from Las Vegas, NV and graduated from Utica College, where she earned 143 points throughout here collegiate career. In addition to her career as a player, she currently serves as an assistant coach for Becker College’s Women’s ice hockey team.
