Reed, who was also named a finalist for Rookie of the Year on Friday, finished the regular-season with the highest save percentage in the league (.945%). In just her rookie season, the Crimson net minder racked up 927 saves, picking up seven league wins and helping Harvard to an appearance in the ECAC Hockey Tournament.
Sauvé ranked in the top-five of the league in a number of categories this season, including goals-against average (1.75), save percentage (.933), and saves (783). She finished up the regular-season with a 13-4-1 ECAC Hockey record, helping the Golden Knights earn the No. 3 seed in the post-season tournament.
Selander wrapped up the season with 1,232 saves, nearly 100 more than the next highest save total. She eclipsed the NCAA saves record (3,810) during the 2018-19 season, and continued to build on that mark during the final few weeks of the season. Her .942 save percentage is second in the nation, and her 2.29 save percentage ranks in the top-25 as well.
