Women's Pro Hockey coming to Aviator Sports Center

Queens Courier except -

The New York Islanders won’t be the only professional hockey team to call Brooklyn home this coming season.

The New York Riveters of the newly formed National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) will play their home games at the Aviator Sports and Events Center located at Floyd Bennett Field.

Nicknamed for the iconic World War II-era “Rosie the Riveter” poster that became a symbol for women’s rights, the Riveters are one of the four inaugural teams that begin the NWHL season this October along with the Connecticut Whale, Boston Pride and Buffalo Beauts. The Riveters will play their first home game at the 2,000-seat sports center on Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. against the Boston Pride.
