Holze made seven appearances with New York during the regular season and chipped in an assist.

Bryant and Morse are both products of Providence College. Bryant posted a 3.29 goals against average in 4,000 career minutes. She added a .877 save percentage. Morse scored 16 goals and added 45 assists from the blue line during her career as a Friar.
