Men's Hockey Continues Dominant Start, Adds 7-3 Win over Bentley

No. 13/9 Harvard found the net early and often against Bentley on Saturday night in the first men’s hockey game at Bright-Landry Hockey Center in over 600 days, cruising to a 7-3 win over the Falcons. Powered by a five-goal first period, the Crimson (2-0, 1-0 ECAC) built a lead too insurmountable for Bentley (3-4, 1-1 Atlantic Hockey) to overcome.

8-Point Weekend

Junior defenseman Henry Thrun handles the puck in Friday's win over Dartmouth, a game that saw him score once and add two assists. Thrun followed up Friday's performance with five assists on Saturday against Bentley to complete an eight-point weekend.

No. 15/14 Men's Hockey Dominates Dartmouth, 9-3, in 2021-22 Season Opener

No. 15/14 Harvard put on an offensive clinic in its first game since March 2020, trouncing Dartmouth, 9-3, at Thompson Arena to open the 2021-22 regular season. The Crimson (1-0, 1-0 ECAC) exploded for six second period goals, burying the Big Green (0-1, 0-1 ECAC), which struggled to create scoring chances in its home opener.

Sticks in the Air

The Crimson had nine chances to celebrate in Friday's landslide victory.

On Friday, the Crimson will return to the ice, ending an agonizing 19-month hiatus that marks the longest stretch without a game in program history. No. 15/14 Harvard will open its season on the road with a conference matchup against Dartmouth at 8 p.m. at Thompson Arena.

Loose Puck

Harvard co-captain and forward Casey Dornbach and Dartmouth senior defenseman Harrison Markell chase down a loose puck in a Nov. 1, 2019, matchup, the Crimson's season opener in the 2019-20 campaign as well. The Crimson would go on to claim a 7-3 victory.


21 points from the blue line, including 18 assists, in his first-year campaign was enough to earn junior defenseman Henry Thrun preseason All-ECAC honors. Thrun garners the accolade alongside forward and fellow junior Nick Abruzzese.

Head Up

Forward Keely Moy (#12, pictured above) averaged 1-point per game in the 2020-21 campaign for HC Ladies Lugano, a season that ended with Lugano winning the Swiss championship, three games to one, in a best-of-five series. Brother Tyler Moy, also a forward, has played in Switzerland since the 2018-19 season.

With Players Scattered Across the Country, Men’s Hockey Prepares for Uncertain Post-Covid Future

Today, as much of college hockey gears up for Covid-era conference playoffs, Harvard players are training in junior leagues and working out with private coaches in all corners of the country. Like the rest of the Ivy League — which canceled all three athletic seasons due to the pandemic — Harvard has watched from afar as many of its non-Ancient Eight opponents play on with restrictions through a pandemic-stricken season.

Reason to Celebrate

The Crimson offense comes together to celebrate a goal against St. Lawrence on March 7, 2020. The players did not know it at the time, but the 7-1 victory over the Saints just a year ago remains Harvard's last game played.

Another Accolade: Nick Abruzzese, Male Rookie of the Year

The Crimson is not the only entity to give first-year forward Nick Abruzzese post-season accolades: his conference already has. The ECAC labeled him the rookie of the year in men’s ice hockey, thanks to a 44-point 2019-20 campaign. The conference also reserved spots for the first-year forward on the all-ECAC First Team and the ECAC All-Rookie team.

Can't Catch These Zs

First-year forward Nick Abruzzese contributed two goals on three occasions in his rookie campaign, including in a rivalry game against Yale on home ice.

Thank You, Seniors

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Harvard's five seniors may not have received the closure they expected. Nevertheless, the class leaves behind an impressive four-year contribution to the program's on-ice winning and off-ice culture.
