Anderson is the second Saint to earn NCHA Offensive Player of the Week honors in a row, powering her team to a sweep of Northland College with a strong offensive showing. She played a role in seven of her team’s nine goals on the weekend, finishing with an impressive 7-point haul (1G/6A) in the sweep. In addition to a pair of 3-assist outings in back-to-back nights (setting up each goal in a 3-0 win Friday), she also had the game-winning goal Saturday.
Czarnowczan is the NCHA Defensive Player of the Week for her efforts on both sides of the ice in Adrian’s weekend sweep of Trine University. In addition to helping out a defense that posted back-to-back shutouts, Czarnowczan also put on an offensive display. On Friday, she assisted three of the four markers in the 4-0 victory and followed that up with a goal Saturday.
