Women’s ice hockey junior forward Brianne Jenner and junior goaltender Lauren Slebodnick both earned awards this week after the team went on a three-game winning streak. Jenner earned the title of ECAC Hockey Player of the Week, while Slebodnick was named Goaltender of the Week.
Both players turned in strong performances against ECAC foes. Jenner scored three goals against Syracuse and two assists, two goals and two assists against St. Lawrence, and capped off the week with a goal and an assist against Clarkson. Her goals sealed the victory for the Red in all three games. This is Jenner’s first Player of the Week award this season. Jenner also won the award twice last year, and was named Rookie of the Week three times during the 2010-2011 campaign.
Slebodnick blocked 13 shots against Syracuse, 16 against Clarkson, and 20 in a shutout over St. Lawrence. The shutout was Slebodnick’s second of the year. This is her first Goaltender of the Week award on the season and the fourth of her career. She won the award twice last season and once during her freshman year. Slebodnick also won Rookie of the Week in 2011.
The Red continues its season this week with games at Yale and Brown on Friday and Saturday.
