HOCKEY EAST HEADLINES
For the first time ever, all 10 Hockey East programs will participate in the Women’s Tournament. In 2021-22, the Hockey East Army ROTC women’s league standings and tournament seeding was determined by points percentage, calculated as the amount of points won divided by the total amount of points available to each team. Hockey East awards three points for a win in regulation, two points for a win in overtime or a shootout, one point for a loss in overtime or a shootout and zero points for a loss in regulation.
The two most crucial series of the weekend proved to be Maine’s sweep of New Hampshire and Boston University’s two-game set with Providence. With eight of the 10 seeds locked up entering the final regular season game of the season, the Friars played spoiler by taking two points from the Terriers and knocking BU into the sixth spot in the Army ROTC Hockey East Standings. At the same time, Maine’s six points, powered by two goals and three assists from Celine Tedenby, secured the fifth seed for the Black Bears.
Northeastern’s Skylar Fontaine’s 36 assists lead the nation. She finished the regular season with 29 assists in league play, the most ever in a single-season by a Hockey East defender. She ends her career with records for most career goals (35), assists (82), points (117), and single-season assists (29) in conference action by a league blueliner.
Fontaine’s teammate Aerin Frankel leaves her mark on Hockey East regular season record books, winning 73 conference games, the most of any goaltender in league history.
Holy Cross netminder Jada Brenon set a new career mark for saves in Hockey
East play, stopping 2668 pucks in conference action. Brenon also holds the sin-
gle-season mark, kicking out 832 in 2019-20 season.
