Boston Pride prevail in inaugural NWHL season
The first season of the four-team National Women's Hockey League is in the books, with the Boston Pride beating the Buffalo Beauts this past weekend in a best-of-three series to win the Isobel Cup. The Pride were led all season by American Olympic star Hilary Knight, who scored 33 points in just regular season 17 games.
The NWHL is the first such league to offer women paid contracts. You can learn more about the NWHL as it looks forward to its second season on its website.

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson could coach the team during its home games next season, reports ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.
The Knicks fired head coach Derek Fisher in early February after starting the season 23–31, and replaced him with assistant Kurt Rambis on an interim basis. According to Shelburne’s report, Rambis could coach the team’s away games next season, while Jackson takes the helm during the home contests.
Jackson, 70, signed a five-year, $60 million deal to run the Knicks in 2014. He has an opt out clause in his contract after the 2017 season.
Jackson spent a total of 13 years with the Los Angeles Lakers, winning five championships as the team’s head coach. He previously won six titles as the head coach of the Chicago Bulls.
The Knicks are 28–40 this season, which is currently the third-worst record in the Eastern Conference.
C.J. Anderson will remain with the Broncos after Denver decided to match the Dolphins’ four-year contract offer, the running back confirmed on Twitter.
Anderson signed a four-year offer sheet with the Dolphins last week but the Broncos had the option to match because he is a restricted free agent. The deal is reportedly worth up to $18 million.
Miami’s offer sheet was reportedly front-loaded in order to make it difficult for the Broncos to match.
Anderson rushed for 720 yards on 152 carries last season and also recorded 25 receptions for 183 yards. He is entering his fourth season in the NFL.
The Dolphins were seeking a replacement for last year’s leading rusher, Lamar Miller, after Miller signed as a free agent with the Texans.
