Here are the top performers from the week of Nov. 12-18 in women's college hockey.

1. Abby Roque, Wisconsin

Wisconsin's Abby Roque

The Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan native enjoyed a pair of multi-point games in the Badgers’ sweep of Minnesota State at LaBahn Arena. Roque scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Wisconsin’s 3-2 win over the Mavericks on Saturday before adding two goals, including the game-winning effort, and two assists in a 6-1 win on Sunday.

Her six points were tied for the most by a WCHA player last week, while her two game-winning goals paced the league and her +6 plus/minus rating was tied for the best mark by a WCHA skater.

The senior forward now has 12 goals this year, which is a career-high mark 14 games into the season. She is only two assists away from 100 career assists.
