BOSTON – Three members of the Harvard women's hockey team have been named 2014-15 New England Division I All-Stars, the New England Hockey Writers Association announced on Tuesday. Defenseman Sarah Edney, goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer and forward Mary Parker all drew regional accolades for their impressive seasons.
Edney, a newly minted All-American, anchored a superb, veteran defensive corps for the Crimson, which allowed just 1.53 goals per game, a top-5 number nationally. The Mississauga, Ontario native also was named the ECAC's Best Defenseman this season as she helped to lead Harvard to its sixth conference title, its sixth appearance in the Frozen Four and a spot in the National Championship game versus Minnesota.
Maschmeyer picks up her second consecutive New England All-Star nod after yet another remarkable campaign. The Bruderheim, Alberta native was an ECAC Goaltender of the Year finalist and led the Crimson into the 2015 National Championship game, where she made an incredible 72 saves against the nation's top two offenses. She finished the year 18-5-3 with a .943 save percentage, fourth-best in the nation.
Parker, also a Second Team All-ECAC nominee and All-Ivy League First Team member, had a season to remember in her own right. The local Milton, Massachusetts native was an ECAC Forward of the Year finalist after compiling a team-best 39 points on 17 goals and 22 assists. She tallied five game-winning goals, a power play goal and two shorthanded scores – including the game winner in the Frozen Four against Boston College – en route to her best season in Cambridge thus far.
