The Jericho, N.Y., native finished the season atop all defensemen in points and assists, with 40 and 34, respectively. Fox also set the scoring pace with the man-advantage, tallying 22 assists and 24 points overall on the power play.
Senior forward Tyler Moy took a big step forward in 2016-2017 and helped lead the Harvard men's hockey team to the Frozen Four.
Harvard’s 2017-2018 leadership group marks the 128th, 129th, and 130th captaincies since varsity hockey’s inception at the school. Madsen, set to don the crimson “C” from the crease, is the first Crimson goaltender to captain a team since the 1979-80 season saw John Hynes ’80 do so.
Ryan Donato earned his 21st goal of the season in Harvard's 3-2 tournament win over Air Force on Saturday. And so did Tyler Moy, whose second-period score penetrated the nation's top penalty-killing unit.
Since Harvard’s NCAA Championship season in 1989, the Crimson had won just a single tournament game. But Donato, the Most Outstanding Player of the tournament during the ’89 run, captured an elusive Division I playoff win in his fifth attempt behind the Harvard bench Friday.
Now, for the third straight year and the fifth time under coach Ted Donato ’91, it’s NCAA tournament time for the Crimson with the ultimate prize on the line—a national championship. But just 60 minutes of hockey could put an abrupt end to Harvard’s memorable ride.
On Friday, the Crimson will travel to the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. to face off against No. 12/12 Providence College, as released by the NCAA on Sunday. The puck will drop at 4:00 p.m. EST and the game will be broadcast on ESPNU.
Historic rivals Harvard and Yale will play games 255, 256, and—if needed—257 of their all-time series in what will be their fourth ECAC playoff series over the past six seasons.
The Harvard icemen, already owners of a 2017 Beanpot championship and an Ivy League title, may need a new shelf on their trophy case after this regular season.
One year after Clarkson swept Harvard in the schools’ two-game season series, the Crimson set the record straight Friday night with its second win of the season over the Green and Gold—a 4-1 triumph at the Bright-Landry Hockey Center.

The last time the Crimson won a Beanpot, only one member of the current team, Phil Zielonka, was even alive. And he was less than two weeks old.
With four of the nation’s most storied hockey programs in action this week, including three top-10 powerhouses, there will be no shortage of elite talent on display at this year's Beanpot.
The Crimson returned to Cambridge licking its wounds but nevertheless knew it would emerge all the better for the effort it put forth in Illinois. Kicking off a five-game home stand, Harvard hoped to show visiting Fort Wayne and Ball State a few newly learned tricks it picked up from its Chicago-based adversaries.
