CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – Freshman forward Haley Skarupa, for the sixth time this season, was tabbed for Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week honors in an announcement made by the Hockey East on Monday.
Skarupa scored the game-winning goal in Boston College’s dramatic 2-1 overtime win over Maine in the Hockey East Quarterfinals on Friday. The goal marked the 50th point of the season for Skarupa, who put a career high 16 shots on goal against Black Bears goaltender Brittany Ott on Friday. As a team, the Eagles fired a program high 74 shots on goal, including 35 in the third period.
Skarupa’s +44 rating and 189 shots on goal both rank second in the Hockey East as Boston College enters semifinal play against No. 10 Northeastern on Saturday.
Saturday’s game marks the third straight season the Eagles have advanced to the Hockey East semifinals – winning their lone crown back in 2011. Both semifinal matchups will be streamed live by the Pack Network at HockeyEastOnline.tv with Sunday’s championship game being shown on tape delay by NESN at 4 p.m.
