CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Returning home after its season-opening contest at Dartmouth, No. 8/7 Harvard women's hockey hosts No. 4/4 Clarkson and St. Lawrence in a pair of ECAC clashes Oct. 30-31. Both games will be broadcast live on the Ivy League Digital Network.

The First Line
• Harvard advanced all the way to the NCAA national championship game at the 2015 Frozen Four after posting a 27-6-3 season that included ECAC Regular Season and Tournament championships.

• The Crimson was picked to repeat as champions in the 2015-16 ECAC Preseason Poll, garnering eight of 12 first place votes to beat out second-place Clarkson.

• Four of the six preseason All-ECAC team slots went to Harvard skaters. Emerance Maschmeyer was the lone goaltender selected, while Michelle Picard, Miye D'Oench and Mary Parker also earned the recognition.

• Miye D'Oench, Briana Mastel and Haley Mullins registered points in the season opener at Dartmouth, with D'Oench recording the first Harvard goal of the season and 51st of her career.

Last Time Out
On the road for its season opener on Friday night at Thompson Arena, No. 5/5 Harvard women's hockey fell to Dartmouth, 2-1.

The Crimson fired 21 shots on goal against the Big Green, led by four apiece from Sydney Daniels and Miye D'Oench. Emerance Maschmeyer made 31 saves in goal for a .939 save percentage in the contest.

Harvard struck first at 12:54 in the first period with a power play goal off the stick of D'Oench to go ahead, 1-0. Haley Mullins started the play with a pass to Briana Mastel behind the goal, and the defenseman wrapped the puck into the crease for a waiting D'Oench who finished with a one-timer. The score was the 51st of her career.
