The Boston Pride traded up to get the player they wanted: forward Sammy Davis, who just finished her college hockey career at Boston University.
The Pembroke native had quite a career on Comm Ave, serving as the team’s co-captain for the past three seasons.
The 23-year-old left wing was a better than point-per-game player over the past two years of her college career, and was nearly at that same mark for her entire career.
In 147 NCAA games, Davis scored 66 goals and added 76 assists for a total of 142 points.
Her career is littered with collegiate accolades as well, including First-Team All Stars, All-Academic Teams, Players of the Month, Distinguished Scholars, and more.
She also received the Sarah Devens Award this season; according to the Hockey East website, the award goes to the player who shows “leadership and commitment on and off the ice.”
Davis was able to do something no other Terrier has done since the program achieved Varsity status in 2005, win a Beanpot, when she scored the overtime winner against Harvard at Bright-Landry Arena.
Per Mike Loftus of the Patriot Ledger, Davis is also planning on pursing a doctorate degree in occupational therapy at Mass General.
In other words, just the kind of person you want to add to your organization.
Welcome (back? staying?) home, Sammy!
Here’s what she had to say:
Davis also scored the dramatic game-tying goal in the final 30 seconds of this past season’s Beanpot final (though Northeastern would end up winning in overtime).
