Don Sweeney, representing the Bruins' collective sentiment, expressed their excitement for Danielle Marmer's unique opportunity. In a statement shared on social media, Sweeney stated, "The Boston Bruins are excited for Danielle Marmer and this unique opportunity. Our organization will certainly miss Danielle and the impact that was made on both our staff and our players. We wish Danielle success in her new endeavor!"

Boston secured the third pick in the first round, setting the stage for shaping a competitive squad and building for the future.

In a captivating introductory video released by the PWHL Boston franchise, Marmer reaffirmed her commitment to uphold Boston's legacy of contending for championships year after year. She stated, " I know you want a competitive team that vies for championships year after year, that's just how Boston is. And I'm committed to building a team that this city will be proud of. "

While the PWHL anticipates a 24-game regular season to commence in January, the comprehensive schedule is yet to be unveiled as of Friday morning.
