CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women’s hockey team will add seven freshmen to its roster for the 2012-13 season, the Landry Family Head Coach for Harvard Women’s Ice Hockey Katey Stone announced Thursday. The group of freshmen hails from four different U.S. states and two Canadian provinces.
“We are very excited about this year’s incoming freshman class,” said Stone. “They bring energy, ability and strong promise for the future of Harvard hockey.”
Harvard racked up its 10th 20-win season under Stone in 2011-12, compiling a 22-9-1 overall record to go along with a 17-4-1 conference mark. The Crimson was ranked as high as seventh in the national polls during the regular season and had 10 players record at least 20 points in the campaign that saw it reach the ECAC tournament semifinal. Harvard graduates just one senior from the 2011-12 squad and returns its top 13 scorers.
