RPI’s Whitney Renn Signed by the Boston Pride

Whitney Renn’s life in hockey has taken her from the Little Caesars youth program in her home state of Michigan to college hockey at RPI to a season of pro in Salzburg, Austria. Today, the 23-year-old defender-forward signed an NWHL contract to join the Boston Pride.

“I am inspired by the players of the Pride who have put a great emphasis on promoting women’s hockey through their great play in the NWHL and their work with youth at skills clinics, off-ice programs and Q&A sessions,” said Renn. “I want to be part of all of that, too. The NWHL and the Pride provides a platform for me to inspire a younger generation of players – something I will not take for granted. I am humbled to be signing with a team that is committed to advancing women’s hockey across all levels.”

Renn played 131 games at RPI over four seasons from 2014-2018. Last season with DEC Salzburg Eagles of the EWHL, she was 3-12-15 in 20 regular season and playoff games.

A native of Troy, Michigan, Renn is moving to Boston to play in the NWHL, secure a job utilizing her RPI degree in Business Management, and apply to law schools.

Regarding her goals for hockey, Renn said, “This season I will continue to work on each phase of my game, learn from my teammates, grow as a player, and get better in order to help the team however I can. I am looking forward to being surrounded by great players and a coaching staff who are backed by a league whose mission I support.”
