DULUTH, Minn. – Wisconsin women’s hockey freshman Caroline Harvey added another impressive honor to her collection on Thursday as the defender was named a second-team All-American by the American Hockey Coaches Association.
The 2023 WCHA Rookie of the Year, Harvey is the 22nd different Badger to collect All-America honors and is the first Badger to collect All-America honors as a freshman since Meghan Hunter did so during the 2000-01 season.
A 2022 Olympian for the United States, Harvey led all WCHA rookies with 38 points thanks to 12 goals and 26 assists from the blue line. Her 38 points are the fifth most in program history by a defender and only Sis Paulsen (1999-00) posted more points as a rookie defender than Harvey.
Harvey’s 12 goals are the fourth most in school history by a blueliner and her 38 points also rank eighth among all rookie skaters in program history.
The Salem, New Hampshire, native is the ninth Badger blueliner to earn All-America honors, joining the likes of Grace Bowlby (2021), Courtney Burke (2016), Molly Engstrom (2005), Carla MacLeod (2004, 2005), Meaghan Mikkelson (2007), Jenny Ryan (2017), Bobbi-Jo Slusar (2006, 2007) and Kerry Weiland (2001, 2002).
