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.
