The New York Riveters of the National Women’s Hockey League announced on Thursday that they named Chad Wiseman as the General Manager.

Wiseman brings 14 years of professional hockey experience to the Riveters. The Burlington, Ontario native played in the National Hockey League, American Hockey League and in professional leagues throughout Europe and Asia throughout his career.

Commissioner Dani Rylan said, “Chad brings a wealth of hockey knowledge to his general manager role with the New York Riveters, we are excited to bring him back for a second year.” The Riveters did not have much success last season. They finished the inaugural campaign in fourth place with a 4-12-2 record, while falling to the Boston Pride in the first round of the Isobel Cup Playoffs.

Wiseman, who spent time during his playing career with the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils organizations said, “I am very excited and honored to take on the GM for with the Riveters.

The continued and rapid growth of this league and women’s hockey makes for a very exciting time in this sport. I could not be more thrilled to be a part of it.”

Wiseman added, “The ground work was set for the New York Riveters inaugural season, our team model was based off hard work, discipline, accountability and most importantly character. The core group of character players that will be returning are the leaders we want to set examples for the new, young athletes coming into our organizations.”

While Wiseman will replace Rylan as the Riveters general manager, he will also retain his head coaching position with the organization. With Wiseman taking over at general manager, it gives Rylan more time to devote to her role as commissioner for the new league.
