Boston, MA – The Boston Pride have announced their first goaltending acquisition of the offseason with the signing of 22-year-old Corinne Schroeder for the 2022-23 Premier Hockey Federation season. Additional terms of the contract will not be disclosed.

“I am very excited to be joining the Boston Pride next season. They have built an incredibly successful program and welcoming culture that I am excited to be a part of,” said Schroeder. “After four years at BU, Boston feels like home for me and I’m excited to have the opportunity to play in such an incredible city and in front of such great fans once again!”

Schroeder has competed in NCAA hockey for the past five seasons. The Elm Creek, Manitoba native came to Boston in 2017 to play hockey for Boston University where she started 91 games over four seasons with the Terriers. She posted a career .925 save percentage in those four years, including eight shutouts. Accolades from her BU career include Hockey East Second Team All-Star (2019-20), Hockey East Third Team All-Star (2018-19), Hockey East All-Rookie Team (2017-18), Hockey East All-Academic Team (2019-20, 2018-19, 2017-18), AHCA All-American Scholar (2019-20, 2018-19), and National Goaltender of the Year Award Watch List (2020-21). Schroeder completed a graduate season at Quinnipiac University during the 2021-22 season where she recorded 15 wins, six shutouts, a goals-against-average of 1.44, and a remarkable .951 save percentage along with a career-high 73 saves in one game. Schroeder was named the Bobcats’ Women’s Hockey MVP and was a candidate for the NCAA’s Women’s Goalie of the Year award.

“Corinne is a great addition to our team. She will be able to provide a solid back-stop to a strong team and help us continue to win.” says General Manager Maddie Rigsby. “We’re excited for her to be a part of the next generation of the PHF as she joins fellow collegiate players Gilmore and Giguere!”

Schroeder also has experience at the national level with Team Canada. In 2017, she won a silver medal at the IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship, and most recently was invited to the Hockey Canada National Women’s Program Summer Showcase, which takes place August 3-14.

Schroeder is Boston’s tenth signing of the offseason, as the team continues to complete their roster. She joins returnees McKenna Brand, Meghara McManus, Lauren Kelly, Christina Putigna, Taylor Wenczkowski, and Kali Flanagan, as well as free agent Allie Thunstrom, and fellow collegiate newcomers Becca Gilmore and Elizabeth Giguere. Schroeder provides a strong backstop as the Pride seek to defend their Isobel Cup Championship title for the third straight season.
