Additions Behind the Bench
The Crimson coaching staff was bolstered by a pair of additions from around the ECAC. Lee-J Mirasolo joins Harvard after four years as an assistant coach at Princeton, while Liz Keady dons Crimson after spending the 2014-15 season as an assistant at Union. Mirasolo enjoyed a four-year career at Boston College, while Keady played four years at Princeton.
Senior Emerance Maschmeyer and Sarah Edney '15 were named to the Canada Women's National Team's 22-player roster for the 4 Nations Cup in Sundsvall, Sweden, as announced by Hockey Canada on Tuesday. The tournament will run from Nov. 4-8 at Sundsvall Energi Arena.
Scoring in 3s
The Crimson scored three or more goals 23 times in 2014-15, posting a 22-1-0 record in those contests. Individually, Mary Parker was the last Harvard player to net three goals in a game, potting three against Brown Feb. 7, 2015.
Through three games, Harvard is 1-0-0 when it scores three goals.
Triple Digits Within Reach
Harvard's senior class holds a 75-21-11 record through three-plus seasons, and is 25 wins away from reaching the 100-victory mark. The 2014-15 senior class ended up with 97 wins, and the last four-year group to record triple-digit victories was the class of 2006, which tallied 104 triumphs for the Crimson.
Harvard hosts Union and Rensselaer in a pair of ECAC contests Nov. 13-14 at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center. Both games will be broadcast on the Ivy League Digital Network.
Climbing the Record Books
A plethora of student-athletes enter 2015-16 looking to rise in the Crimson's all-time ranks. Emerance Maschmeyer is 264 saves away from breaking the Harvard record for stops in a career, and she is on pace to own the team record for save percentage as well. Mary Parker, Miye D'Oench and Sydney Daniels will look to improve on their current top-40 rankings in points, goals, assists or all three.
The Bright-Landry Hockey Center has been one of the toughest venues in the country for opposing teams over the past few years, as Harvard has posted a 42-5-5 record at home over the past three-plus seasons. Harvard was 15-1-1 at home in 2014-15, and won 17 straight in Cambridge from March 1, 2014 to Feb. 10, 2015.
