The ninth ranked Harvard Crimson get their season underway at home against Ivy League and ECAC rival the Yale Bulldogs. The Crimson are coming in after a 2-2 exhibition tie against the McGill Martlets that saw Katherine Chute net both goals for the Crimson. Expectations are high as always in Cambridge, with much of last year's NCAA qualifying team returning, and the all-time winningest coach in Division I Women's Hockey, Katey Stone, behind the bench. Yale brings in a familiar face, as new head coach Joakim Flygh served three years as the assistant coach for the Crimson. Yale, who lost to the same Martlets 1-0 in an exhibition game, are seeking their first win of the young season, after a 4-1 loss and a 1-1 tie on the road against the Vermont Catamounts of Hockey East.
Don't miss the season opener for Harvard women's hockey, as Bryan Dunmire and Charlie Hobbs will be live from the Bright Center for a 6:45 pregame, and the drop of the puck at 7:00 pm on 95.3FM and WHRB.
