COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Rising sophomore Lindsay Reed has been selected to attend USA Hockey's Women's National Team Goaltending Camp, set for May 16-19 in Plymouth, Mich. The camp is part of USA Hockey's restructured approach for goaltending development and the women's camp will run in tandem with the men's World Junior camp.
Just 10 female athletes were selected to attend the camp led by Bob Corkum, head coach of the U.S. Women's National Team; Steve Thompson, goaltending coach for the U.S. Women's National Team; and Alli Altman, goaltending coach for the U.S. Under-18 Women's National Team. The trio will work alongside Laura Bellamy, Larry Clemens, and two-time Olympic silver medalist Bri McLaughlin.
Additional attendees include 2018 Olympic champions Nicole Hensley (Lakewood, Colo./Buffalo Beauts), Alex Rigsby (Delafield, Wis./Calgary Inferno) and Maddie Rooney (Andover, Minn./University of Minnesota Duluth), as well as Emma Polusny (Mound, Minn./St. Cloud State University), member of the IIHF Women's World Championship gold medal-winning 2019 U.S. Women's National Team.
During her collegiate debut season, Reed secured her spot as the Crimson's starting netminder, appearing in 27 of 32 games. Overall, she amassed 927 saves, a single-season program record, for a .940 save percentage and allowed just 59 goals for a 2.18 goals against average. In conference play, across 17 games she registered a .946 save percentage, good for first in ECAC Hockey, and 1.92 goals against average which ranked top-five among starting goalies in the conference. For much of the season, Reed stood at the top of NCAA Division I goaltenders in both statistical categories.
In 17 of her 27 games played, the New Vernon, N.J. native totaled 30 or more saves and posted 45+ saves in three consecutive contests in early February. She notched her career high of 52 saves in the opening round of the 2019 Beanpot Tournament, a 4-1 win against No. 7/7 Boston College. She posted three shutouts this season, including back-to-back clean sheets against Rensselaer and Union Nov. 30-Dec.1.
