With more than 250 Selects alums across Division-I men’s and women’s hockey, we highlight some of the standout performances from last week and other recent news with a closer look at the college landscape.
Conferences across the country handed out their Player of the Month awards, with Selects alumni well-represented after a fiery November. USA Hockey also announced its camp rosters for men’s and women’s teams for the upcoming international tournaments, with many vying for a spot in the coming weeks.
Hockey East named Maureen Murphy Player of the Month after she recorded a point in every game during November for Providence College. The sophomore forward scored five, yes five, game-winning goals last month and scored 14 points in total during that stretch.
Senior at Quinnipiac and former ‘96 ECS-Q forward Chase Priskie was named ECAC player of the week, leading the team and the conference with three goals scored in a sweep of No. 19 Princeton in the home-and-home series. He scored the eventual game-winning goals in both games, and also led the defensive charge on Friday night, spearheading a defensive unit that held the Tigers scoreless for the first time this season.
Great weekend for Quinnipiac (13-2-0) Home and home sweep Princeton (3-6-1). 6-3 win tonight. Chase Priskie (@Capitals drafty) is entering Hobey discussion. Two goals. Senior D-Man Captain is now 11-8-19 in 15 games. pic.twitter.com/XGbTR5r3wH

Priskie’s hot start to the 2018-19 season has him garnering national attention as a candidate for the Hobey Baker Award, as the Washington Capitals draft pick has 11 goals and 19 points in 15 games from the blue line.
Jaycee Gebhard earned CHA Player of the Month after she racked up 16 points in November, compiling a 12-game point streak along the way. The junior center tied a Robert Morris University program record with that streak and led the Atlantic Hockey Conference in scoring for a second consecutive month.
