Wisconsin earns 5th women's ice hockey national title

Here are the top performers from the week of Oct. 21-28 in women's college hockey:

1 - Sini Karajalainen, Vermont 

The sophomore defenseman tied for the nation’s lead in points last week, as she posted an NCAA-best six points on one goal and five assists for Vermont. The Posio, Finland native helped the Catamounts to a 1-0-1 weekend at Merrimack, including assisting on all four goals in Friday’s 4-4 tie. In addition, she became the first Catamount to record four assists in a single game during the program’s Division I era. She also added the game-winning goal in Saturday's 6-2 triumph.

She is the first Cornell goaltender to open the season with a shutout since 2007 after making 19 saves in a 6-0 victory. On Saturday, she stopped all 16 Colonials’ shots for the third shutout of her career.
