The New York Riveters announced on Thursday that they have resigned Bray Ketchum, for the 2016-2017 National Women’s Hockey League season.

In making the announcement, general manager Chad Wiseman said that the Riveters and Ketchum agreed to one-year contract worth 15,000 dollars for the season.

Ketchum played in all 18 regular season games for the Riveters during the 2015-2016 season, while leading the team with 10 goals on the season. She also was tied for the lead in points with 14, last season.

Ketchum said, “The inaugural season of the NWHL was above and beyond what I expected, and I am honored to be a part of the Riveters for a second season. We had a great group of girls and we were so lucky to have the incredible support of our fans. I look forward to an even more successful season this year”

The Riveters finished the season in fourth place, with a 4-12-2 record. In the opening round of the Isobel Cup Playoffs, New York was swept by the Boston Pride in two games.

The NWHL is the first professional women’s hockey league in North America to pay its players. The inaugural season began on October 11, 2015 with the Founding Four Teams, being the Riveters, Pride, Connecticut Whale and Buffalo Beauts.

The Pride won the first Isobel Cup on March 12, 2016, as they defeated the Beauts at the Barnabas Health Hockey House in Newark, New Jersey.
