    It generally is the player and her family's decision to release info on injuries (see Denna Laing as an example). If she and her family choose to keep it private then that is their right - hope for the best and move along.

    Looking at their respective schedules of remaining games/opponents it appears that Harvard has a legitimate chance to take 8th place over RPI. They have an easier path than RPI. It's going to be interesting to see what happens down the stretch.

    That's three straight, Hab.

    I had no idea that I was so influential . You know, as I think about RPI's recruiting more carefully, it seems that some of their biggest success stories have been in Europe. Maybe not in terms of numbers, but quality. From the current team, two of their top players, Hansen and Selander, from Denmark and Sweden. And before she was injured Heidi (Hutamaki) Niskanen was shaping up to be their best ever defenceman, IMO.

    Good to see the team thinking ahead to the difficult job of replacing Selander in net. It is always a bit of a risk to reach into the ranks of Midget teams for a recruit but you can't wait too long to find a strong goalie or you will find yourself dealing with the leftovers. Rampado is with a strong program and seems to be doing well. And in 2 1/2 years maybe she'll be 2 1/2 inches taller .

    Yup, I was looking at the same thing...Harvard will definitely make a run at the playoffs and RPI will have to play their best hockey of the year in their final 6 games.

    Of course, Hansen had been playing in the US.

    I am going to have to locate the pictures from the Alumnae game over the weekend. If your daughter was there, she may have told you about a European recruit.


    Edit: If she is in the 2nd picture, I won't be able to identify her even after clicking on it to enlarge it.

    No, my daughter wasn't there (she does try to get to most of the alumnae games despite the long trip). Curious about the Euro recruit, 'though.

    Agree with you completely HE33. These situations are always a matter for the individual player and his/her family. I vividly remember when my daughter was playing midget hockey and I arrived at a game a few minutes late, to see all of the players and refs gathered around a player down and motionless on the ice. Fear became panic as I saw the number on the back of the jersey. Fortunately, it was not a serious injury, but ever since then I have always reacted (overreacted?) when I have seen a similar situation. As you say...I hope for the best.

    Sometimes its best to bite ones tongue. No streaming from Colgate?

    Did the Alumni get a chance to mix with the current players?

    Hab did your daughter enjoy her time at RPI and hockey?

    I was kidding. I do not know of any women's recruit from Europe.

    Harvard picks up a very big point in the standings with the tie vs Clarkson. Next weekend's games are going to be "Yuge!!" especially the head to head tilt next Saturday.

    The playoff race will be a nail-biter for sure (that seems to be an annual tradition for the Engineers). Hard to see how RPI holds onto 8th without a win (or at least a tie) against Harvard, given the fact that Harvard's remaining three games (Union, Brown, Yale) are softer than RPI's (Dartmouth, QU, PU).

    I think RPI is going to need to beat Dartmouth on Friday. I don't see Harvard losing to Union this time around. If RPI loses to Dartmouth it's highly likely that Harvard will arrive on Saturday just one point behind RPI and extremely hungry to head home after the game one point ahead of them. RPI is on home ice for these 2 critical games so that has to be to their advantage, or so you'd think.

    All three of our JWHL U19 recruits (Blitz, Ondrick, Weiss) will be playing in the league All-Star game on 2/16 at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Ballston, VA.


    I may go but I am more likely to go to the tourney from 2/17 to 2/20.

    Thanks to a post by vicb on the Clarkson board I found out that Josefine Hansen will be missing this weekend's games due to being in Arosa Switzerland playing for Denmark in an Olympic qualifying tournament. http://w-groupc.pyeongchang2018.iihf.hockey/.

    They lost their first game to Switzerland today 6-1 http://w-groupc.pyeongchang2018.iihf...9/DEN-vs-SUI//
