Junior Sydney Daniels and seniors Miye D'Oench and Emerance Maschmeyer were placed on the second team, while senior Michelle Picard tallied a third team nod. Maschmeyer and Picard were also finalists for the ECAC Hockey Goaltender and Defenseman of the Year awards, respectively.

The ECAC Hockey Player of the Month for February, Daniels finished the 2015-16 campaign with 21 goals and 31 points to garner All-ECAC Hockey second team honors. The left wing finished second in the ECAC with 14 goals in conference games, and led the Crimson at plus-20 on the season. Daniels was also named to the All-Ivy first team.

D'Oench led the Crimson with 37 points on 14 goals and a team-best 23 assists, and was named to the All-ECAC Hockey second team. D'Oench ended her career with 122 points, ranking 15th in Harvard history. Starting all 31 games, D'Oench tallied 12 multi-point outings on the season and ranked 22nd nationally in points per game (1.16). The right wing was also an All-Ivy second team selection.

Maschmeyer was named a finalist for ECAC Goaltender of the year for the third year in a row, and picked up All-ECAC Hockey second team honors for the second-consecutive season. A co-captain, Maschmeyer ended the season with a 1.87 goals-against average and .938 save percentage, and ranks in the top-two all-time at Harvard in career saves (2,538), save percentage (.940) and goals-against average (1.65). The netminder was also an All-Ivy first team honoree.

Picard was chosen as a finalist for the ECAC Defenseman of the Year award, and earned third team All-ECAC Hockey honors. The co-captain finished the season with 10 assists and 12 points, and led a Harvard defense that ranked in the top-10 nationally all season. A native of Taunton, Massachusetts, Picard was selected to the All-Ivy League first team earlier this month.

Harvard finished the season at 17-12-3, including a 12-7-3 mark in ECAC Hockey action.
