Marissa Gedman, Women’s Ice Hockey

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Marissa Gedman, a sophomore on the Harvard women’s ice hockey team, has been named the Harvard COOP Athlete of the Week for Oct. 31. Gedman tallied a goal and two assists in the season-opening win over St. Lawrence and scored the game-winner in overtime against Clarkson. The game-winning tally came just 1:32 into overtime as the Framingham, Mass., native took a pass from Michelle Picard and moved to just outside the right faceoff circle where she slapped a shot past the Clarkson goaltender. She also contributed to a defensive effort that allowed two goals in the season’s first two contest. Gedman finished the weekend with a team-leading five points and a +4 rating.
