MADISON, Wis. -- After a four-point outing last weekend at Bemidji State, junior Brittany Ammerman has been selected as the WCHA Women’s Offensive Player of the Week, the conference announced on Wednesday.
This marks the second time Ammerman has been honored by the league with a weekly honor, as the River Vale, N.J., native was named WCHA Rookie of the Week on Nov. 3, 2010.
Ammerman tallied three goals and an assist propelling the No. 2-ranked Badgers to a sweep of the Beavers.
In last Friday’s 6-0 triumph, Ammerman tallied two goals and an assist as she was one of three players to record three points for the Cardinal and White. She also put four shots on goal, earned a +2 plus/minus rating, and was the game’s No. 2 star.
In last Saturday’s 3-1 Wisconsin win, Ammerman scored the game-winning goal at 15:48 of the second period while the Badgers were shorthanded, fired five more shots on goal, earned a +1 rating and was the No. 1 star of the game. It was her second shorthanded goal of the year and third game-winner.
Ammerman’s four points on the weekend was a team-high mark, and she scored on three of her nine shots on goal. The Badgers’ top scorer this season with 31 points in 24 games, she ranks 14th nationally, averaging 1.29 points per game, and her 0.67 goals per game average is the second-best mark in the conference and sixth-best mark in the country.
