ALBANY, N.Y. – Harvard women's hockey Kristin Della Rovere has been named ECAC Hockey's Player of the Month for December 2019 as announced by the league today (Jan. 7). Della Rovere ranked second in the nation with seven points through three games in December.
The sophomore began the month with her second hat trick this season at Yale. Her trio of goals included the game winner and was the first natural hat trick for a Harvard player since 2012. The next day, the forward recorded her second straight game-winning score on the power-play in overtime at Brown. Following the break for finals and the holidays, she lit the lamp twice in Harvard's New Year's Eve tilt at No. 9/9 Boston College. Della Rovere took credit for her third consecutive game-winning goal en route to a 7-1 thrashing of the Eagles.
Della Rovere and the Crimson return to action this weekend, hosting Quinnipiac and No. 7/7 Princeton. Harvard will put its unblemished 9-0-0 conference record on the line as it looks to hold onto the top spot in conference standings.
