ALBANY, N.Y. - The ECAC Hockey women’s weekly awards have been announced, and Kayla Vespa (St. Lawrence), Gabrielle David (Clarkson), and Bella McKee (Union) have all been honored for the week ending October 20, 2019.
Vespa (Sr. - Hamilton, Ont.) earns her second consecutive Player of the Week selection after another huge weekend, leading the league in scoring with five points (3G, 2A). She scored a goal and added two assists in Friday’s 5-1 win over Holy Cross, before registering her first-ever multi-goal game on Saturday to help the Saints earn a series sweep.
David (Fr. - Drummondville, Que.) was the second-leading rookie scorer in the nation this weekend, registering four points (3G, 1A), all coming in Saturday’s win over Robert Morris. The left wing had an incredible breakout performance, recording her first-career hat trick which was capped off by a game-winning goal with just 0:17 seconds left in overtime.
McKee (Fr. - Irma, Alberta) was outstanding between the pipes for Union this weekend, stopping 90 of the 95 shots she faced over two games (.947%). In Saturday’s 2-2 tie, she stopped a career-high 51 shots, allowing just two goals in the process.
