“I took a lot of time these last four months to reflect on my career, my rights, and future steps that I am eager to take in my life. After thinking long and hard about exactly what those signify and how they can connect, I decided that I wasn’t ready to retire from the NWHL.

What can I say? I’m a hockey player! This game has been a big part of my life, I’m still young and I’ve got plenty of quality hockey left in me. I continued to train a lot this summer, and spent some time on-ice with [Riveters coach] Chad Wiseman, who lives a town over from me in Ontario. I realized I had more to offer.

But there were other factors, of course. The impact I was able to make as an active pro athlete in the LGBTQ community meant a lot to me. At this time – when rights seem to be getting taken away instead of gained – the platform is something I’m not ready to give up. I want to remain as visible as I can for any LGBTQ youth who may view me as a positive role model. I’m going to continue to share my story.” - Harrison Browne | New York Riveters | NWHL
