PRINCETON, N.J. -- Cornell junior forward Brianne Jenner (Oakville, Ontario), who has led the Big Red to a share of its fourth-consecutive Ivy League title and a No. 2 national ranking, was named the 2013 Ivy League Women's Ice Hockey Player of the Year on Thursday when the League's annual postseason honors were announced.
Jenner, who earned her third consecutive first-team All-Ivy selection, leads the League in points with 55 this season on an Ivy-best 28 goals and 27 assists. Her 2.04 points per game ranks fourth nationally. In her nine League games, Jenner recorded 12 points on five goals and seven assists.
Harvard freshman goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer (Bruderheim, Alberta) was named the League's Rookie of the Year. She is the first goaltender since Dartmouth's Sarah Tueting in 1995 to win the League's top rookie honor. In splitting time with senior Laura Bellamy, who earned first-team All-Ivy honors, Maschmeyer compiled a mark of 9-4-2 with a 1.45 goals against average and a .931 save percentage.
Bellamy (Duluth, Minn.) earned first-team honors by going 12-1-1 on the year with a national-best 0.92 GAA. She had a save percentage of .949 on the year, tops in the League and second nationally.
Jenner was joined on the first-team front line by Harvard senior Jillian Dempsey (Winthrop, Mass.) and Cornell sophomore Jill Saulnier (Halifax, Nova Scotia). Dempsey, who earned her fourth All-Ivy selection (two first team, two second team) led the League in scoring during conference play with 19 points on nine goals and 10 assists. Overall, she is second in the League in scoring with 42 points on 23 goals and 19 assists.
Saulnier, the 2012 Ivy League Rookie of the Year, was third in the League in conference scoring with 16 points in 10 contests. She was tied with Dempsey for the lead in assists with 10. Overall, Saulnier has 40 points on the season on nine goals and a League-high 31 assists.
Harvard sophomore Sarah Edney (Mississauga, Ontario) and Cornell senior Lauriane Rougeau (Beaconsfield, Quebec) earned first-team All-Ivy honors on defense. Edney is a plus-22 on the year and has three goals and 15 assists in her 27 contests. Her 0.67 points per game ranks 19th in the nation among defenders.
Rougeau, who earned her fourth All-Ivy selection (three first team, one second team) is plus-34 for the season, tied for the team-best alongside Jenner. She has 22 points on the year on six goals and 16 assists. Her 0.76 points per game ranks 11th in the nation among defenders.
Earning second-team All-Ivy honors were Harvard juniors Kalley Armstrong (Maple, Ontario) and Lyndsey Fry (Chandler, Ariz.); Cornell juniors Jess Campbell (Melville, Saskatchewan) and Lauren Slebodnick (Manchester, N.H.) and senior Laura Fortino (Hamilton, Ontario); Dartmouth senior Reagan Fischer (Irma, Alberta) and Yale sophomore Jaimie Leonoff (Montreal, Quebec). Fortino earned her fourth All-Ivy honor of her career (three first team, one second team).
Including honorable mention honorees, Cornell led the way with seven All-Ivy selections, followed by Harvard with six. The Crimson and Big Red shared this year's Ivy League championship with identical 8-1-1 marks, just the second time in League history that the title has been shared.
