TORONTO – After a record breaking career with the Crimson, Harvard women's ice hockey's Emerance Maschmeyer '16 was selected with the fourth pick of the first round in the Canadian Women's Hockey League (CWHL) Draft by the Calgary Inferno, as announced by the league on Sunday.
Maschmeyer enjoyed an awards-filled career at Harvard where she helped the Crimson advance to the NCAA Championship in 2015. In 2016 alone, Maschmeyer was named to the All-Ivy League first team, All-ECAC Hockey second team, while also being hailed as a finalist for the ECAC Hockey Goaltender of the Year award. Additionally, the Bruderheim, Alberta native was selected to IIHF World Championships with Hockey Canada, where she was honored as the tournament's top netminder.
Maschmeyer was the 10th Crimson skater to earn All-America status and was named a Patty Kazmaier Top-10 Finalist in her sophomore campaign. In 2013, she was the first goaltender to win Ivy League Rookie of the Year since 1995. A co-captain in 2016, Maschmeyer ended her career in Cambridge as Harvard's all-time career saves leader (2,538) and concluded her tenure second in program history with a .940 save percentage.
The Inferno are one of five teams in the CWHL, with teams also located in Boston, Brampton, Montreal and Toronto. Maschmeyer gives Harvard a first round selection in the CWHL Draft for the second-straight year, as Sarah Edney '15 went first overall in the 2015 draft by the Brampton Thunder.
