Minnesota-Duluth sophomore winger Zoe Hickel of Anchorage has already surpassed her goal total as a freshman and tied her point total as a rookie, and this week she has been named the WCHA's women's Offensive Player of the Week.
Hickel bagged the game-winning strike in both Bulldogs victories at Bemidji State last weekend, when UMD won 4-2 and 4-1. She also added an assist, 10 shots on goal and a +3 rating.
For the season, she leads the Bulldogs in goals and points with 7-5--12 totals in 15 games. Her 53 shots on goal also lead the club, and she's +3.
