SKUDDER NAMED ROOKIE OF THE WEEK BY WOMEN'S HOCKEY EAST

WAKEFIELD, Mass.Brittany Skudder (Plainview, N.Y.), a freshman forward on the third-ranked University of New Hampshire women’s ice hockey team, was named Rookie of the Week by Women's Hockey East on Monday.

Skudder netted two power-play goals to lead UNH to a 3-3 tie at sixth-ranked St. Lawrence University on Oct. 24. Her first goal of the game gave the Wildcats a 1-0 lead less than five minutes into the game and the second tally extended UNH’s lead to 3-1 late in the second period. Both the two goals and two points are career highs.

In eight games this season, Skudder has compiled three goals and three assists for six points.

UNH (5-1-2 overall, 1-0-0-0 Hockey East) returns to action at the Whittemore Center this weekend with league games against Connecticut (Oct. 31; 5 p.m.) and Maine (Nov. 1; 3 p.m.). Kids are encouraged to wear a costume to Saturday’s game vs. UConn and Sunday’s game vs. Maine is a “White Out the Whit” event.
