1 – Jaycee Gebhard, Robert Morris
The Plenty, Saskatchewan native powered the Colonials’ attack in a conference-opening weekend sweep of Penn State, factoring in on eight of 10 goals scored.

3 – Grace Zumwinkle, Minnesota
The junior forward led Minnesota with four points on two goals and two assists as the Gophers took five of six WCHA points from top-ranked Wisconsin at home last weekend. In Minnesota’s 4-2 win in game one, Zumwinkle scored the go-ahead goal for the Gophers, making it 2-1 midway through the second period, and netted the eventual game-winner with her 11th goal of the season. In the team’s 2-2 overtime tie in game two, Zumwinkle assisted both of Minnesota’s goals; as she led all players with eight shots on goal. The Excelsior, Minnesota native is on a team-best six-game point streak, and she leads Minnesota with eight multi-point games on the season. She has had two points in each of the Gophers’ last four games.
