COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Hockey recently announced a list of 44 players that have been invited to USA Hockey's Women's Winter Training Camp. Among the list of attendees is Harvard rookie goaltender Lindsay Reed. The camp will serve as an opportunity for top players to prepare for upcoming international events, including the IIHF Women's World Championship set for April 2019. The five-day affair will run from Dec. 17-21 at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Mich. and a full schedule of events can be found here.
Reed joins an accomplished list of players invited to attend, including 22 Olympians, 19 of which were on the gold medal team in PyeongChang. The roster also features 23 active NCAA players, No. 9/9 Boston College and No. 1/1 Wisconsin leading the group with five players each. Reed is one of just six goalies on the roster.
Just two months into the season, Reed has established herself as one of the top goalies in the nation. She is currently ranked second in the nation in save percentage (.958) and fifth in goals against average (1.42) among Division I schools. Those marks are both good for first in ECAC Hockey. Last weekend, the New Vernon, N.J. native posted her first career shutout and tallied the first back-to-back shutouts for a Harvard goalie since Nov. 2015. Earlier this season, Reed backstopped Harvard to consecutive overtime games at No. 1/1 Wisconsin, including 85 saves over two sold out games in Madison.
In addition to Reed, former Harvard Hockey standout Shelly Picard will also attend training camp. Picard graduated from Harvard in 2016 and has played the last two-plus seasons with the Metropolitan Riveters of the NWHL. In addition to helping lead Team USA to a silver medal in Sochi, Picard has skated in four IIHF Women's World Championships, five Four Nations Cups and two IIHF Under-18 Women's World Championships. While with the Crimson, Picard was voted captain during her junior and senior seasons and was an ECAC Defenseman of the Year finalist in 2014-15.
