News and notes[edit]

  • In February 2011, the passing of Daron Richardson inspired the Yale Bulldogs to raise awareness of youth mental health issues. Freshman forward Jenna Ciotti played with Daron’s sister, Morgan on the Ottawa Senators of the PWHL. In addition, Ciotti was also coached by Daron’s father, Luke Richardson. The Bulldogs’ support for the Do It For Daron charity was symbolized by the purple wristbands the club wore during the month of February and March in the 2010–11 Yale Bulldogs women's ice hockey season. She played on the PWHL Senators with Morgan Richardson (under Luke Richardson’s coaching) for two seasons. Ciotti wanted the bracelets to keep Daron's spirit alive and support the Richardson family.[7]
  • April 3: Mandi Schwartz succumbs to recurrent acute myeloid leukemia at age 23.[8]
  • April 22: The Yale Bulldogs introduced the Mandi Schwartz Award. The award is given in acknowledgement of a Yale Bulldog player’s courage, grit and determination. Aleca Hughes was named as the first winner of the award.[9]
  • April 22: Aleca Hughes was elected team captain for the 2011–12 Yale Bulldogs women's ice hockey season.[10]
