    Miles Arnone and a group of investors have purchased the Boston Pride from the National Women's Hockey League, making it the only club with a private owner.

    The NWHL announced the sale of the Pride on Tuesday. The Buffalo Beauts previously were the only team with a private owner until Terry and Kim Pegula sold it back to the league in May.

    The NWHL hired a firm to help find owners for all five of its teams, which had been league-owned and managed. Commissioner Dany Rylan believes having a private owner committed to a team helps boost local marketing and sales.

    The fifth NWHL season begins in October. The Canadian Women's Hockey League ceased operations in the spring.
