Five Things That Happened in the ECAC, October 14th Edition

1. Princeton celebrated World Girls’ Hockey Weekend on Saturday: The Tigers offered a free slice of pizza to every girl who came to the team’s exhibition game against McGill wearing a hockey jersey, and signed autographs following the game.

2. A.J. Mleczko Griswold was inducted into the Harvard Varsity Club Hall of Fame: Mleczko Griswold was one of 11 members inducted into the Hall of Fame on Oct. 10. She captured Olympic gold with Team USA back in 1998, and silver in 2002, and is a former Patty Kazmaier Award winner and USA Hockey Bob Allen Women’s Player of the Year.

3. No one wants to go to Canton: Four games into the season, St. Lawrence has already knocked off Clarkson and kept pace with Boston College. Led largely by the goaltending of senior Carmen MacDonald, as well as a team defensive effort, the Saints tied the Eagles 2-2 on Saturday, earning their second notable result against a top team this year. Amanda Boulier scored with 4:08 left in regulation to tie things up.

4. Brown hosted Team IMPACT Graduation Day: The Bears held a special graduation ceremony for 12-year-old Angelica Negron, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2006 and joined Brown through Team IMPACT in 2012. Team IMPACT is “an organization whose mission is to connect and cultivate meaningful relationships between college teams and children facing life-threatening illnesses.”

“When Angelica first came to the team I thought that we were going to help her – help her get back into school, get good grades, and make her feel proud,” head coach Amy Bourbeau said at the ceremony. “Now at the end, it’s odd to me because I thought we were going to give Angelica all these things, and she’s given us so much more.”

5. Shenae Lundberg set Union’s career shutouts record: Lundberg earned her fourth-career shutout against UConn on Saturday, making 33 saves in the 1-0 victory. The senior netminder is now first in the Dutchwomen record books in career shutouts.
