“The season was basically characterized by learning curves,” said tri-captain forward Jake Horton. “It gave a lot of guys...that didn’t necessarily get those experiences over the past few years...the experience that they’re going to need to be great [next] season.”
Tri-captain goaltender Merrick Madsen of the Harvard men’s hockey team has signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Arizona Coyotes organization of the National Hockey League, according to a statement released on Tuesday.
Despite several surges of momentum, Harvard men's hockey was simply unable to find a solid offensive footing as the Big Green played unflinching defense. The visitors nabbed a 4-1 victory in Game 1 of the series.
After dropping Game 1 of the ECAC quarterfinals to Dartmouth the day before, Harvard needed to come out strong to save its season. That’s exactly what the Crimson (14-13-4, 11-8-3 ECAC) did, handing the Big Green (16-16-2, 11-10-1) a 7-1 drubbing.
