The Hockey Humanitarian Award Foundation revealed on Tuesday its list of finalists for the 2019 Hockey Humanitarian Award. Among the five named were Selects coach and current Wisconsin Badger Annie Pankowski.

Gabbie Hughes was named WCHA Forward of the Week after she scored goals in each game over the weekend and factored in four of Minnesota-Duluth’s six total goals.

Former ‘97 West Coast Selects forward Rem Pitlick was named Big Ten Hockey’s First Star of the Week after he scored five points over the weekend. The 5-foot-9, 196-pound Minnesota junior picked up his fourth-straight multi-point game on Saturday while setting a new single-season career high in points with 33 in 27 games.
