As the Saint Anselm Hawks have soared against Division 1 and Division 2 ranks, the Manchester, N.H.-based college has added talent from one of the strongest women’s hockey regions in Massachusetts. A contingent of South Shore of Boston talent has migrated north to New Hampshire, where they are helping build a power program.
With a 14-2-3 overall record and convincing efforts against Div. 1 Holy Cross (0-0 tie, 1-0 loss), Saint Anselm was riding high heading into late January. Without a Division 2 national tourney to compete in, could the Hawks earn an at-large bid to the D-1 postseason tournament? If so, a trio from the Bay State will be crucial in that accomplishment.
