Harvard University forward and Boston Bruins 2014 second round pick Ryan Donato is having a career year this season and after posting 8-7-15 numbers in his first ten games, and he hasn’t lost a step after a long layoff dating back to December 2, 2017, with a game against the Princeton Tigers. The crafty, skilled player got back on the scoresheet last night in a 5-2 loss to the Umass-Lowell Riverhawks. The return to action for the Crimson took place at Burlington, Vermont’s Gutterson Fieldhouse for the Catamount Cup Holiday Tournament.


Donato continued his NCAA career-best season as a junior at Harvard with the first goal of the game last night at the 19:28 mark of the first period to take his 2017-18 point streak to eleven games and 9-7-16 numbers within that timeframe.

They are 2-1-0 at home and 2-4-1 on the road and are not currently ranked Nationally in the top 20.
