Home-Ice Advantage

Harvard is 26-10-3 at home since the start of 2014-15 and won 17 straight in Cambridge from March 1, 2014 to Feb. 10, 2015.

National Recognition
Harvard was ranked for 79 consecutive weeks by the USCHO and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine, a span covering four seasons. The Crimson fell out of the Jan. 18/19 polls in 2016 for the first time since Oct. 15, 2012.
