In the last 10 meetings with Princeton, Harvard has gone 6-4, outscoring the Tigers 29-11.
Harvard freshman Brooke Jovanovich and Princeton freshman Annie MacDonald both attended high school at Appleby College in Ontario, Canada.
The Crimson outshot its 2016-17 average by a 14-shot margin in the season opener (43-29.3). Brooke Jovanovich led the team with seven shots on goal. As a team, Harvard attempted 66 shots against Dartmouth.

Fellow defensemen Emma Buckles and Kaitlin Tse are slotted eighth in the nation, averaging 1.00 points per game.
