UNH's Gordon named Player of the Week

WAKEFIELD, Mass. -- Carolyn Gordon (Petrolia, Ont.), a junior forward on the eighth-ranked University of New Hampshire women's ice hockey team, was named TPS Louisville Player of the Week by Women's Hockey East, the conference announced Monday.

Gordon also received the honor Oct. 21 and it marked the third time this season that a Wildcat received top player honors. Chandy Kaip was honored as Player of the Week last Monday (Nov. 11).

Gordon recorded three points, all on goals, in a two-game weekend sweep of 10th-ranked Princeton in which the 'Cats were 2-1 and 7-3 victors.

Gordon leads the team with eight goals and is 18th in the country in that statistic (0.73 per game). The eight tallies matches her single-season high, which she set a year ago. She also has a team-high three game-winning goals, which ranks third in the nation. Gordon is tied for second on the team in points with 12.
