Lovisa Selander from @RPI_WHockey is continuing with her hockey career on 2 larger stages. She's going to play in the @NWHL & she's one of the goaltenders on the Swedish Women's National Hockey Team.— Dave Aiello (@daveaiello) April 3, 2019
Here's a great article about her from @TheHockeyNews, https://t.co/a7FyDqDwH2. pic.twitter.com/Abfhn1lBRM
I just checked how Ena Nystrom did in the tourney. Her page https://www.iihf.com/en/events/2019/...er-nystrom-ena. 92.37% save percentage. 1.82 GAA. She was the only goalie to play for Norway,
Friis-Hansen's page https://www.iihf.com/en/events/2019/...r/3857/denmark. 5-1-0-1-2.While Gasparics won the award as best forward, Charlotte Wittich of Austria won the vote for the best defender while Norway’s Ena Nystrom got the award as best goaltender.
More accolades for Ellie Kaiser '20: The #FenwickFriars All-State/State Champ hockey star & her Chicago Mission teammates have won their 2nd straight 16U national title! The junior forward from Westmont will play D1 women's ice hockey for RPI (Troy, NY). https://t.co/Q5GfsCFnwh pic.twitter.com/hSU8VKsbP5— Fenwick High School (@fenwickfriars) April 15, 2019
I will add Helgeson to the RPI recruit page when I next post it, probably Sunday She is a defenseman and graduates in 2021, so I assume that is when she is coming. She played for Roseau (MN) HS and the Minnesota Northern Starzz. NZ gives her 3.50.

FWIW, the only person following her whom I noticed connected to RPI is new men's transfer Alec Calvaruso. That's a bit odd since usually at least one of the RPI coaches is following a recruit, but it might be because Helgeson doesn't use Twitter much.
Also, a year ago, NZ rated her 4.25, but she has been downgraded twice and is now 3.50.
Edit: She is now being followed and following Clarkson's Morgan Helgeson. She is being followed and following RPI recruit Aliya Jomha. She is being followed by current player Emma Hicks.

This is a one hour interview, so you have to be a huge fan of RPI hockey and of Lovisa Selander to enjoy it, but I thought it was great! Pisacano does a great job as an interviewer. What I liked most about the interview is that it provided a real insight into what it is like to be a D1 athlete while pursuing a demanding academic program, and also insights into how RPI attracts top talent like Selander: as often as not it is the athlete that identifies the school as the right fit and reaches out. That was the case when my daughter chose RPI as well. But I'm not sure how RPI can make that happen more often. It will always be tough to compete with Minnesota etc in just recruiting on hockey talent alone. How do we attract more Selanders?
I missed this a couple of weeks ago.
Sophia Jones (Connecticut Polar Bears U16) commits to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) for 2022-2023 @RPI_WHockey— WHockey Commits (@WHockeyCommits) May 3, 2019
According to Neutral Zone, Elite Prospects, and https://collegecommitments.com/Commi...x?x7cq9=FEMALE she is our first 2022 recruit. She is currently 15 years old.
Elite Prospects page https://www.eliteprospects.com/playe...9/sophia-jones
This is what will appear when I next post the recruits list unless I find more info:
Edit: Neutral Zone prep page https://www.neutralzone.net/prep-wom...hia-jones-451/.Code:6 Sophia Jones D 05/02/19 Connecticut Polar Bears 16U 2022 09/23/03 5'03" 135 Westfield, MA 3.50 6 Williston Northampton School
Interesting that she committed to us despite the fact that an assistant coach at Williston Northampton is Alex Tancrell-Fontaine, a former Union player and sister of former RPI men's recruit Gunnarwolfe Fontaine.
