With the third National Hockey League lockout in 18 seasons, there is no better time to follow NCAA women’s hockey. The month of October 2012 has already provided some remarkable moments. Over the last few years, the collegiate game has seen young women from national teams throughout North America and Europe make their mark.

Emerance Maschmeyer and Erin Ambrose helped Canada claim the gold medal at the 2012 IIHF Under-18 Women’s World Championships. This season, they are rivals instead of teammates. Maschmeyer is the top goaltending prospect in the NCAA and stands between the pipes for Katey Stone (the NCAA’s all-time winningest coach) at Harvard University. Ambrose joins fellow Under-18 teammate Shannon MacAulay at Clarkson University. With both schools being part of the highly competitive ECAC conference, the next four years will provide many great memories for fans.

Alex Carpenter, a former member of the United States Under-18 team is a big part of USA Hockey’s future. The premier player for the Boston College Eagles, she carries on the legacy of current US National Team member Kelli Stack. With the Boston area boasting some of the finest hockey in the NCAA, Alex Carpenter may emerge as the best player of the area.

The many memorable contests from October 2012 promise that there will be much more exciting contests to come in the months ahead.
