The Harvard women's hockey team was picked to finish on top of the ECAC this season in a recent release done by USCHO. The release points to several key returners, including Jillian Dempsey and Lyndsey Fry, and the addition of seven freshmen as the reason to believe the Crimson will finish in first place.

"We are looking to put our best foot forward in our out-of-conference schedule, and if we do that, good things will come our way," said Katey Stone, The Landry Family Head Coach for Harvard Women's Ice Hockey. "We're going to have a little bit of a deeper bench, which will help us a lot."

The preview, written by Arlan Marttila, is quoted as saying, "Returning its nucleus intact should provide the Crimson with an edge that will allow them to get out of the blocks quickly and grab another ECAC title." To read the full release, click here.
