Princeton women's hockey senior forward Lizzie Keady has been named the winner of the 2008 Sarah Devens Award. Given as a joint award between ECAC Hockey and Hockey East, the Devens Award is presented annually to a player who "demonstrates leadership and commitment both on and off the ice."

Each conference submitted a league nominee for consideration. The winner receives a post-graduate scholarship of $10,000. Keady is the first Tigers’ student-athlete to receive the Devens Award. She registered double-digits in scoring for the fourth consecutive season amassing 19 points (9 goals and 10 assists) in 28 overall games this past season, while playing most of the season with four fractures in one foot and a bad back. One of her on-ice achievements for the season was earning ECAC Hockey Playerof- the-Week honors for the week ending February 3, scoring three goals and adding three assists in leading Princeton to three victories.

Off the ice, Keady has been involved in numerous activities. She is an active member of IACT, an initiative for athletes to raise money for local charities by finding jobs for teams on campus. The teams work, donate the money made, as well as attempt to find local companies to match the earned money. Keady has been a contributor and organizer of such programs as Toys for Tots and Big Brothers/Big Sisters. Keady also has organized hockey-related programs such as Skills N' Drills, and taught power skating and stick handling skills. During the summers, Keady assists with a hockey humanitarian program called "Teaming Up," which raises awareness and money for maternal health in developing countries.
