BUFFALO, N.Y. (WBEN) - Buffalo native and Olympic Gold Medalist Emily Pfalzer has re-signed with the Buffalo Beauts.

The team announced they've agreed to terms with the defenseman who is returning for her third year with the Beauts. In 32 games over two years, she's recorded 19 points and is tied for second among Beauts players all-time in assists (16) and ranks sixth in points.

“Emily arrives with championship experience both with the Beauts and with the United States national team,” General Manager Nik Fattey said. “Her presence will help solidify our already strong defense and having a local player of her caliber return our club will be invaluable to the team both on and off the ice.”

Pfalzer won a gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. She was also a member of the U.S. World Championship teams that captured three consecutive gold medals from 2015 to 2017.
