“Buffalo was the team to give me my first opportunity to play in the PHF,” said Grant-Mentis in a statement. “so choosing to make a professional change to the Buffalo Beauts at this point in my career is an excellent opportunity for me to fine-tune my skills and bring them to an entirely new level on and off the ice. I feel great pride joining a team with good history, a team where all members have mutual respect and value everyone’s contributions.”
The Canadian-born player was a star for NCAA D1 program Merrimack College. During her four years with the Warriors, Mikyla scored 117 points (56 goals and 61 assists) and is the program’s all-time leading point scorer, all-time assists leader and ranks second all-time in goals.
After her senior season, she joined the Beauts at the tail end of the 2019-20 season.
Now she’s returning to Buffalo as the highest-paid player in league history, and Buffalo is excited to welcome “Buckey” back.
