It was quite the week for Harvard defenceman Adam Fox.

The freshman helped the Crimson capture their first Beanpot title in 24 years last Monday when they downed Boston University 6-3 in the tournament's final game and wrapped up the seven-day stretch with two points in Harvard's 6-0 thumping over Brown on Saturday.

With four goals and 30 points through 26 games, Fox now leads all NCAA freshmen defencemen in scoring and is seventh overall in scoring amongst first-year players. Amongst all NCAA blueliners, Fox is third in the scoring race, trailing seniors Matias Cleland (2 goals, 32 points in 32 games) and Will Butcher (6 goals, 30 points in 32 games). 

Calgary's 2016 third round pick leads all Harvard defencemen with 50 shots and is a plus-16 on the year.

On Monday, Fox played a key role in Harvard's third period run against Boston University at the Beanpot final. He assisted on Alexander Kerfoot's power play goal just 31 seconds into the final frame, pushing Harvard's lead to 4-2, and scored an empty-netter at 18:10. The 19-year-old was credited with two shots in the 6-3 victory.

Fox was held off the scoresheet in Harvard's 4-2 win over Yale on Friday, registering three shots in that game, but would not be denied in Saturday's rout over Brown.

The blueliner scored his fourth goal of the year at the 5:20 mark of the first period and collected the primary assist on Tyler Moy's power play tally at 15:23 of the second period. Fox had three shots in the victory.

Fox and Harvard will wrap up their regular season this weekend when they face Clarkson on Friday and St. Lawerence on Saturday. Harvard has won eight straight and currently sit second in their conference with a 14-4-2 record. Overall, they hold a 20-5-2 record.
