Toronto Six captain Shiann Darkangelo, goalie Elaine Chuli returning for PHF Season 8

The Toronto Six have had a great start to the offseason, so far. They started off with a tidy piece of business, signing their leader, captain and All-Star Shiann Darkangelo on a 1-year contract. Darkangelo had a stellar point-per-game season in Season 7, with 8 goals and 12 assists in 20 games. She’s by all accounts an incredible leader and person, someone who is inspiring woman to play with. She’s also an incredibly strong and talented hockey player, to boot!

Goalie Elaine Chuli is also back for Season 8, Toronto’s main starting goaltender last season. She played 17 games and had a 93.1% save percentage in that span. She’s also been nominated for goaltender of the year along with Boston’s Katie Burt and Buffalo’s Carly Jackson.

The team is excited to bring back a top-tier young defender, surely. Davison had 4 points in 20 games and made the All-Star team in her first season.

Final Thoughts
These three re-signings for Toronto come with a couple of noted departures. Firstly, what probably should have been the top piece of business for the Six, re-signing their top scorer Mikyla Grant-Mentis, didn’t get done. Grant-Mentis signed a landmark $80,000 deal with the same Buffalo Beauts she began her pro career with 3 years ago.

The Six will also be without Tori Charron, who has moved to the offices as the Metropolitan Riveters’ General Manager.
