With little to report on our beloved Boston Bruins, we turn our direction to another local hockey team, the Blades. After having spent last season playing in Winthrop, the now former Boston Blades have relocated to Worcester, changing their name to the Worcester Blades.

Along with a change in scenery comes a change in management and a new logo. Since this weekend was draft weekend, it’s like it’s a whole new team.
In addition to a new head coach, we also have a new GM. Please welcome Derek Alfama to the Boston Blades!!https://t.co/DlDbTKPw0b

The team has hired a new coach, Paul Kennedy, who used to be the skating coach for the Women’s National Team with USA Hockey before retiring from that position in 2014.
I hope the fresh start is what they need to succeed. Maybe Boston was too crowded a market for the league with the NHL and several college teams and another women’s team from the competing NWHL. We’ll see if the team can thrive in the Woo.
