Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award
Boston College junior forward Alex Carpenter has won the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, given annually to the top player in women’s college hockey. The award was presented Saturday at the University of Minnesota, the site of the NCAA championship. Carpenter beat finalists Hannah Brandt, a junior forward for Minnesota.
After breezing through the regular season unbeaten, Minnesota has needed overtime to win its first two games in the NCAA women’s hockey tournament.
When the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award is given out in two weeks, Minnesota is guaranteed the winner.
