Metropolitan Riveters Forward Rebecca Russo and MeiGray Group Join Forces
Metropolitan Riveters forward, Rebecca Russo, and MeiGray Group teamed up to form the first National Women’s Hockey League’s Game-Used Player Authentic Equipment Program on Thursday.
The new program designed specifically for the NWHL, allows fans and collectors the opportunity to acquire fully authenticated game-used sticks, gloves and helmets directly from the Riveter’s All-Star. The new program will grant fans the opportunity to meet the 23-year-old, Boston University alumna, and receive the items following the games as well as during the post-game autograph sessions.
Russo: “I am truly honored to be partnered and represented by MeiGray“
The 2017 NWHL All-Star Game Fastest Skater, who starred at Shattuck-Saint Mary’s in Faribault, Minnesota said, “I am truly honored to be partnering and represented by MeiGray. I take great pride in my play and how I conduct myself as a person, both on and off the ice.”
She continued, ”
I hope to maintain the highest standards with the Riveters, NWHL and women’s hockey. I could not be more excited to be represented by such a premiere organization. Many thanks to Barry Meisel for this opportunity and for your continued support of the NWHL.”
Meisel: “…Rebecca is popular with the fans. Rebecca Plays hard. She represents best NWHL has to offer.”
Meisel, the President and Chief Operating Officer for MeiGray added, “The feeling is mutual. We could not think of a better first player partner for this new NWHL program. Rebecca is popular with the fans. Rebecca plays hard. She represents the best the NWHL has to offer. We think this new program will be a hit with her fans.”
