WHKY: Minnesota State Goaltender Abbey Levy To Transfer To Boston College

The Eagles will have plenty of competition between the pipes

Boston College Women’s Hockey looks like they will be making a big addition for the 2020-2021 season as Minnesota State goaltender Abbey Levy plans to transfer to the Eagles.

Levy is a really big goaltender at 6’ 1” who takes up a lot of net. The Congers, NY native will be coming over from Minnesota State, who could be generously described as “a team that allows a ton of shots.” After just two years, Levy is already way up there on the list of the program’s all-time best:

[Levy] currently has the best save percentage (.917) and goals-against average (2.58), has the second most shutouts (8), the fifth most wins (14) and the sixth most saves (1,530) all-time at Minnesota State

The WCHA All-Academic Team member should be a great fit for university academically as well. She will fill the goalie slot vacated by the now-graduated Molly Barrow.

For the last two years, Levy’s been one of the better known examples of a top-end goaltender stuck playing on an out-gunned squad. She played almost every game as a freshman before splitting time as a sophomore — getting peppered by the top of the WCHA every night is probably not easy.

The addition of Levy gives the Eagles a trio of juniors between the pipes who have all played significant college minutes. Kelly Pickreign was the 1b to Maddy McArthur’s 1a this past season, and the addition of another proven goalie in Levy will mean some serious competition for the starting role. So one way or another, goaltender is not expected to be a question mark this year for BC.

Welcome to the Heights, Abbey!
