Team USA announced their Women's Worlds Camp Roster. The roster is a 28-person roster with 3 goaltenders, 10 defensemen, and 15 forwards. The final roster will have 23 players on it by the time World's rolls around on April 2. The camp takes place right after the Frozen Four in Lake Placid, NY. Of the 28 players, all but one are current or former NCAA players. One is 15 years old and will likely continue on to play hockey in the future. Of these 28 players, Cornell's alternate captain, junior defenseman Alyssa Gagliardi was named to the roster. She is one of four current ECAC players, including two from Harvard and one from Quinnipiac. When taking alumni into consideration, all women's NCAA leagues including the CHA, the ECAC, the HEA, and the WCHA, are represented.
ECAC Regular Season Champions
For the fourth year in a row, Cornell has claimed the ECAC regular season championship. As you can see in the slideshow below, the women celebrated and are now looking forward to their next goal. Beating Colgate to advance to the ECAC semifinals. Here are some pictures of the team with the trophy.
Speaking of the women's team...due to winning the regular season, they will be hosting another game at Lynah. At least one weekend, hopefully more. They would love the support and if you are in the Ithaca area, there is no reason NOT to pack Lynah again for this amazing women's team. The record attendance can still be broken and they deserve the support. The men will be at Brown and Yale, so if you are in Ithaca, be there Friday at 7 and Saturday at 4.
As if it weren't bad enough already...this happened. We have no words.
The ECAC players of the week were all Ivies and 2/3 Cornellians. The player of the week named was senior forward Greg Miller. Miller was great with two goals on Friday against RPI and two goals and an assist. Andy Iles was stellar in net for the Big Red, backstopping two victories as well as a stellar save percentage to earn him Goaltender of the Week.
There can't be enough said about how great it was for the men to pick up a win on senior night. Some amazing pictures from Mark H. Anbinder exist from the evening, including a particularly touching one after Omar Kanji gave his stick to two kids waiting to see the seniors skate off.
Here is WAFT's sendoff to the seniors.
