Medford, Mass. native and William Smith College goalie Maggie Salmon was named ECAC Women's West 2016-17 Defensive Player of the Year after a brilliant campaign for the Herons. Before moving onto William Smith, Salmon played four years with the Boston Jr. Shamrocks and received goalie training at Puckstoppers from Bob Rotondo.
Salmon appeared in 18 contests and accumulated a 6-8-4 mark in those outings while compiling a 1.92 goals-against average and .951 save percentage. The junior led all ECAC Women’s West goalies with 656 saves, and ranked second in the league and eighth nationally in save percentage at the end of the regular season. She is the first William Smith player to earn an ECAC Women’s West major award.
