Big Shoes to Fill

Sophomore forward Ty Pelton-Byce was the Crimson's sole goal-scorer in Friday's bout with the Dutchmen. The Madison, Wisc., native will have big shoes to fill moving forward, as he has slotted up to fill Ryan Donato's usual top-line center role.

Junior net-minder Michael Lackey started for Harvard on Friday, as usual No. 1 goalie Merrick Madsen presumably earned the night off to rest and prepare for Monday's Beanpot consolation game.

Men's Hockey Knocked Back Down to .500 by Union

Down in the third period, the Harvard men’s hockey team turned up the heat at Union. But despite the Crimson’s efforts—and the play of junior net-minder Michael Lackey, who kept the Dutchmen at bay—the comeback attempt fell short on Friday night. The Dutchmen held off Harvard for a 3-1 win, handing the Crimson its fourth loss in five games and sending the team back to .500.

Ryan Donato walks down the tunnels of the United Center in Chicago after the 2-1 loss to Minnesota-Duluth in the Frozen Four. A sophomore at the time, Donato used the defeat as motivation to improve over the summer and come out of the gates strong in 2017-2018.

Last season's Beanpot victory gave Donato a taste of winning big events. He and the Crimson rode this feeling all the way to the Frozen Four last season, and Ryan will surely take those experiences with him to South Korea.

The Donato men enjoyed last season's Beanpot title as both a father-son duo and a player-coach pair. The tournament victory is surely among Ryan's greatest hockey moments shared with dad.
