Winter Sports Supp 2017
“It’s a new year. We lost a lot of great players, a lot of great leadership.” For the Harvard men’s hockey team, these words from coach Ted Donato ’91 are all too familiar. Each season, and especially the last two, the talent walking the stage in late May seems irreplaceable. And yet, the Crimson is starting to develop a knack for turning over its roster and staying competitive year in and year out.
Coming off an atrocious 5-19-5 campaign, Harvard has racked up two wins already thanks to new leaders and a batch of skilled youngsters.
This year, three Crimson players hail from the province of Ontario: senior captain Chris Egi, junior guard Corey Johnson, and freshman forward Danilo Djuricic. Additionally, Amaker secured a verbal commitment this fall from Noah Kirkwood, a 6’6” guard from Kanata, Ontario
Picked to finish third in the Ivy League behind Princeton and Penn, the Crimson returns a bevy of talent and experience as it seeks to build on last year's 21-9 season.
