Getting to Know Katie Burt
Katie Burt is a goalie from Lynn Massachusetts playing for Boston College. Before arriving at BC, Burt played at Buckingham Brown & Nichols (BB&N) for three years before graduating one year early. At BB&N, Burt was an Independent School League (ISL) all-league performer for all three years she played. She was also an ISL co-MVP in 2011-12 and was named to first-team All-New England in 2012-13. At the 2014 IIHF U18 Word Championships, she backstopped the US Under-18 team to a silver medal. During her Freshman year at BC, Burt spent the first three months of the season as a 17-year-old. Despite her young age, she flourished at the college level as she was named Hockey East Goaltending Champion and Hockey East Second Team All-Star. Burt was also named to the Hockey East All-Academic Team and the Hockey East All-Rookie Team. She ended the season with a nation leading 1.11 goals against average as well as a 0.941 save percentage, good for fifth in the nation. Burt continued to impress her Sophomore year, being named to accolades such as Hockey East Goaltending Champion, Hockey East All-Star honorable mention, and the Athletic Director’s Award for Academic Achievement. She ended the season with a 1.23 goals against average for third best in the country and a 0.943 goals against average for fourth-best in the country.
Last year, as a Junior, Burt was selected to the All-USCHO Third Team, and the Hockey East All-Tournament Team. She was also named a Hockey East All-Star honorable mention for the second straight year. Her 1.54 goals against average was fifth best in the country and her 0.935 save percentage was sixth in the country. Burt has entered her final year at BC with her name already in the NCAA record book. She is in the top 10 in the NCAA record book for career wins, career shutouts, save percentage, goals against average, and winning percentage. Currently, Burt holds Boston College records for wins, shutouts, save percentage, and goals against average. Burt will graduate BC with an economics degree. She was drafted first overall in the NWHL draft this summer by the Boston Pride.
Must See Matchup
Last week’s must see matchup featured two close games between Boston University and Northeastern. Northeastern came out on top in both of the games. On Friday, Northeastern won 3-2 in overtime. BU started the game off strong with two power play goals. However, Northeastern proceeded to score three unanswered goals to win the game in overtime. While NWHL draft picks did not get on the score sheet during the first game, they made some noise in the game on Saturday. Northeastern’s 6-3 win featured a total of three goals and three assists from draft picks. McKenna Brand and Denisa Krizova of Northeastern both scored in the second period to help build a 3-1 lead. Both Brand and Krizova also assisted on a Northeastern goal in the second period that ended up becoming the game winner. Victoria Bach of BU scored to close the gap to 4-3 in the third period. However, Brand added her second goal of the night to make it 5-3 before an empty netter sealed the win for Northeastern.
This week’s must see matchup is between St. Lawrence and Merrimack. The two teams play back-to-back games on Saturday October 14th and Sunday October 15th. These two games will feature the second star of this week, Kennedy Marchment, as we see if she can keep up her impressive production.
