    Division I B Worlds wrapped up on Saturday. Pia Dukaric is named best goaltender in Division I B Worlds for the 2nd straight year, with Slovenia, by the directorate awards, with a .951 save % on more shots than minutes played. Proud of the Yale Bulldog!

    It'll be interesting to see how Yale recovers from the losses of the last few seasons. This past season, Hartje had almost 20% of her team's total points. That is the highest percentage in the NCAA this year. Similar situations/players, Fillier and Daniel, were right around 18%, but no one had quite the load and impact that Hartje had. And I believe Hartje was also in the top two or three in the NCAA for faceoff win percentage. Despite the personnel losses from 2022-2023, the biggest difference between this season and the last ended up being the play of Dukaric. She absolutely stole some games back in 2022-2023.

    Next season, the skill on the team will be more evenly disbursed and the players will be a year older. So hopefully they can overcome the loss of these "generational players". But ultimately, whether the team can continue to be nationally ranked probably depends on goaltending.

    You're right; Yale had generational players overlap with Hartje, Dalton, Welch, and Seitz. To have the latter three all leave at the same time understandably left a bit of a void.

    Yale Bulldog Women's Hockey 2024-25

    In 2024-25, the Yale Bulldogs will have a large senior class of 11. This includes several leaders/top players on offense like Anna Bargman, on defense Vita Poniatovskaia and Emma DeCorby, and in net Pia Dukaric.

    Elle Hartje graduates this year with 168 points. She is Yale's all-time leading scorer. Overall, Yale loses the scoring of 41 out of 204 total points recorded this season (20.1%), including 13 of 80 goals. The previous season, a higher percent of players and point production of players graduated, out of a higher total of points, and scoring declined overall. Let's hope that this time there are plenty of skaters to step into the breach!

    Bargman and Jordan Ray ended the year on the first line with Hartje. Stephanie Stainton, a rising sophomore, has also been a good center.

    According to Elite Prospects, Neutral Zone, and College Commitments, the following players are recruits for the fall:
    F: Mackenzie Allen (Burlington Barracudas), Avery Peters (Burlington Barracudas), Emma McGowan (Mid-Fairfield, CT)
    D: Alexis Fields (Florida Alliance), Sophia Levering (Boston Jr Eagles), Isabella Paolucci (Belle Tire, MI)
    G: Naomi Baechler (Las Vegas Thunderbirds juniors'), Natalie Frey Perusse (Long Island Gulls boys')

    That's 8 potential first-years. Go Bulldogs! : )
