A Look At The Harvard Hockey Program

from Nathaniel Popper of the Boston Globe,

The Harvard hockey experiment is being led by a Boston-bred coach, Ted Donato, a 1991 Harvard graduate who was a fun-loving forward on the national championship team before moving on to a long career playing in the NHL, including many years with the Bruins.

Harvard’s top brass showed its interest in maintaining a serious program when Donato was hired in 2004, but the coach, now 40, doesn’t have an easy job. Unlike other Division 1 schools, Ivy League colleges, in deference to need-based financial aid programs and an amateur ideal, can’t use athletic scholarships to recruit players. And because of league rules, Harvard is not allowed to play as many games as other Division 1 teams, and it has to start full practices later in the fall.
