The Boston University women’s team has announced its incoming freshman class, as well as two Division I transfers.
The two transfers are Reagan Rust (RIT) and Abbey Stanley (North Dakota).
Rust skated for RIT for two seasons (2015-17) and finished third on the team in scoring last year with 14 points on three goals and a team-high 11 assists. She was named to the CHA All-Rookie Team in 2016 after recording career highs in points (18), goals (5) and assists (13).
“[Rust] is a smart player who has played forward and defense over the years,” said BU coach Brian Durocher in a news release. “I expect her to assist our blue line crew with her skill and solid positional play. Her experience at the college level should be an asset for our young ‘D’ corps.”
Stanley appeared in 33 games for the Fighting Hawks last season as a redshirt freshman and tallied six points (two goals, four assists) for North Dakota, including her first collegiate goal on Oct. 14 against Minnesota State.
“[Stanley] will be counted on as an experienced college hockey defenseman,” added Durocher. “She brings good size, skating ability and offensive skills. I expect her to contribute on both special teams and all even-strength situations.”
