Men’s hockey Daigneau takes Tudor Cup, Reese named new captain

Senior goaltender John Daigneau received the John Tudor Memorial Cup as the most valuable player for the league champion Crimson at the team’s annual banquet this past Saturday (April 22) at the Harvard Club of Boston. Filling the skates of 2005 Hobey Baker finalist Dov Grumet-Morris ’05, Daigneau posted a 19-10-2 record to tie for third on the Crimson’s single-season wins list while earning most outstanding player accolades in ECACHL championship play. He finished his career ranked third on the Harvard all-time lists for save percentage (.914) and goals-against average (2.40). Defenseman Dylan Reese ’07, meanwhile, was named the team’s captain for the 2006-07 campaign. Reese collected four goals and 15 assists this past season to lead all Harvard defensemen.
