Anchorage’s Jordan Smelker is driven to win championships, which is why she’s headed back to the Boston Pride.

After helping Boston win the National Women’s Hockey League’s inaugural Isobel Cup in 2016 and reaching the Finals again this year, the 24-year-old forward signed a contract to come back for a third season.

“I love this team and this league, but the biggest motivator in coming back for a third season is getting the Isobel Cup back to Boston,” she told the NWHL website.

Smelker, of Service High fame, has recorded 12-17—29 totals in 39 career games with the Pride.

She’s made the Finals in three consecutive seasons in two leagues.

In 2015, she won the Clarkson Cup with the Boston Blades in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. That same year she struck gold with Team USA at the Four Nations Cup.
