The Metropolitan Riveters on Tuesday announced that they re-signed forward Miye D’Oench and added Harvard defender, Chelsea Ziadie for the 2018-2019 National Women’s Hockey League season.

D’Oench, who was limited to nine games this past season due to injury, scored seven goals and six assists for the Riveters. The third-year player put up two assists during the Isobel Cup Playoffs, including being credited with the helper on Alexa Grushow’s, Isobel Cup clinching game winner during the finals.

During her rookie campaign, in the 2016-2017 NWHL season, she has five goals and nine assists in 18 games. In games she appeared in last season, the Riveters were a perfect 11-0.

The five-foot-four forward said, “I can’t wait to get back to Barnabas to defend our Cup in front of the best fans in the league. From NHL partnerships to the expansion to Minnesota, the league has taken huge strides in the past year.”

She continued, “It’s inspiring to see the momentum women’s hockey has earned on the international stage as well and shout out to the incredible performance the athletes gave in the gold medal game. It’s an amazing time to be a part of this sport. I’m so excited to return to the Riveters this coming season.”

In 135 games during her collegiate career at Harvard University, D’Oench scored 64 goals and 58 assists. During her senior season, she was named to the All-Ivy League and All-Eastern College Athletic Conference second teams.

The New York native developed her hockey skills with the Mid-Fairfield Stars, in New Canaan, Connecticut and the New Jersey Rockets, in Bridgewater, New Jersey prior to playing for the Crimson. She also helped the United States Women’s National Under-18 team capture the silver at the 2012 International Ice Hockey Federation World Juniors.

The Riveters also added Ziadie to help protect the defensive zone in 2018-2019 season. In 102 games with Harvard she put up seven goals and nine assists while protecting the blue line. The Quebec native attended the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut prior to lacing up the skates for the Crimson.

Ziadie said, “I’m incredibly excited to begin my professional hockey career with the Riveters. I feel extremely luck to have the opportunity to join such a talented team and successful organization.”

In an essay she wrote for the Harvard Athletics website she noted, “The character and work ethic that I have developed as a student-athlete at Harvard will allow me to be successful in the face of the rigors and challenges of my future endeavors, and for that I will be forever grateful.”
