The Hatchet Lake, Nova Scotia native continued her incredible run in 2018-19, stopping 86 of 88 shots in a 1-1-0 week versus Penn State.

The senior was simply dominant over the weekend against the Capital district foes. She registered her second four-point game of the season Friday against Union when she factored into all but one of the Raiders' goals. Her empty-net tally late in the third also broke the school record for career shorthanded goals. The Barrie, Ontario native also broke her own single season points record on the same evening. The following day, she had a highlight reel primary assist on Olivia Zafuto's goal and added a power play marker of her own to complete the sweep with a win over RPI. She was also a +6 rating to bring her season total up to a team-leading +30.
