Leaders Among Women

As the women wrap up a successful exhibition campaign with a combined 14-0 output against the Ottawa Jr. Senators and Brock University, let's take a quick look at the top returning players in the ECAC.

The list is more difficult to put together this year since it's an Olympic season, which means there are a handful of players with remaining eligibility who won't be with their teams this year. Four players in particular are gone in the ECAC who would have appeared in at least one category below - Cornell's Brianne Jenner, with Canada, Harvard's Lyndsey Fry and Michelle Picard with the USA (along with their coach, Katey Stone), and Quinnipiac's Erica Uden Johansson with Sweden. Additionally, St. Lawrence defenseman Amanda Boulier will miss the season with a medical redshirt.

RPI's top players are added where they are not already among the top 10 in each category.
