It is a reset for Buffalo -- but for Browne, it is a historic, new chapter. Browne, a rising star on the Buffalo Beauts of the National Women's Hockey League, is the first openly transgender player in American professional team sports.

Your subject and the article is correct (Team sports) , but your title is not. 

Surprised the article did not mention Renee Richards from the 1970s. Transgender who played pro tennis. I immediately thought of her when I read your post's subject. 

Interesting article subject none-the-less.
