Amidst preparation for the culmination of its conference season, No. 6 Cornell women’s hockey saw two individual awards come its way on Wednesday.
Freshman forward Maddie Mills was named ECAC Rookie of the Week, following her performance in the quarterfinal series against Princeton, which saw her earn five points including two goals — a shorthanded tally in game one and the game-winning goal in Sunday’s series-clinching game three.
It’s the first time Mills has earned the weekly honor for freshmen, but she was previously named the circuit’s Rookie of the Month of November. Last week, Mills was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year.
Junior goaltender Marlene Boissonnault was named the circuit’s Goaltender of the Week for the third time this season. Boissonnault put up a .925 save percentage on the weekend including a 30-save performance in game one and an 18-save shutout in game three.
The Red is back in action this weekend at the ECAC Championships at Clarkson’s Cheel Arena in Potsdam, New York. The team faces No. 4 Colgate in the conference semifinal on Saturday at 4 p.m.
