The WCHA announced on Tuesday that University of Minnesota women’s hockey player Amanda Leveille was named Rookie of the Week. The freshman goaltender garnered her third career win and shutout this past weekend in a 2-0 victory over St. Cloud State.

The Kingston, Canada native received her first start this past Friday night since Nov. 25 when she shutout New Hampshire. She recorded 24 saves to help the Gophers defeat SCSU and extend their winning streak to, at that point, 41 games.

Leveille, who is receiving her first WCHA honor, has played in seven games this year, accumulating nearly 780 minutes in net, and has yet to allow a goal in her college career.

Minnesota has now accumulated 23 WCHA honors this season with 11 of those awards coming in the Rookie of the Week category.

The Gophers carry their 42-game winning streak into the First Round of the WCHA Playoffs this weekend as they host Bemidji State for a best-of-three series. Friday’s game is slated for 6 p.m., while Saturday’s and Sunday’s games are scheduled for 4 p.m.

Tickets for this weekend are available at MyGopherSports.com. All session tickets range from $8-15, while single game tickets are priced at $5-10.
