2016-17: In several ways, Lydick's freshman season - which ended with the team's rookie of the year award - was among the most prolific ever laid down by a Penn State goaltender. She became the only documented netminder in PSU history to play every available second in the crease over the course of the year (goalie stats were kept beginning with the 2002-03 season). Her 1448:37 on the ice ranked second to Katie Vaughan's 2011-12 total of 1545:25 among modern-era goalies, and third overall in the combined history of the Lady Icers and Lady Ice Lions when bringing in Tara Wheeler's 2003-04 season. Her 842 saves, on the other hand, are tops at Penn State in any era, and boosted heavily by a team single-game record of 64 (on 68 shots) at Michigan State on January 21, 2017. Lydick recorded her first career shutout against NCAA Division III team Lebanon Valley College two weeks later, on Feburary 4, 2017.

Prior to Penn State: Lydick has an extremely deep hockey background, including playing for Indiana Area High School's varsity boys team in addition to the Altoona, PA-based Mid-State Mustangs Tier II U19 team, which she captained during the 2015-16 season. Prior to that, Lydick played for the Armstrong Arrows Tier II U19 squad. She helped backstop the Arrows to a Mid-Am District championship in 2014-15 - including a shutout of the Steel City Selects in the district tournament opener. That trip to USA Hockey nationals was one of three for Lydick, as she also visited youth hockey's biggest stage in 2010-11 and 2011-12 as a U12 and U14 player, respectively.

Personal: Megan Nicole Lydick was born in Indiana, PA on August 25, 1998 to Doug and Fran Lydick and has a younger brother, Owen. The academically-inclined netminder was a National Honor Society member in high school, while also qualifying for high honor roll during every period of her high school career. In addition to hockey, Lydick also played on the Indians' varsity lacrosse team, serving as a three-year captain. The architecture major is artistically talented as well, and was featured in a show at a local gallery, along with other IHS seniors, in the spring of 2016.
