Lindqvist, Maggy honored for Panthers
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A pair of seniors on the Plymouth State University women's ice hockey team were among those recognized by the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) when the league announced its weekly award winners on Monday afternoon.
Senior Emelie Lindqvist (Gulleråsen, Sweden) was named the NEHC Women's Ice Hockey Goalie of the Week, while classmate Brooke Maggy (Los Angeles, Calif.) was selected to the Weekly Honor Roll after the duo helped guide the Panthers to a perfect 3-0-0 record.
Lindqvist had a huge week between the pipes, totaling 121 saves while posting a 0.976 save percentage and 1.00 goals against average. She matched a career-high with 52 stops and added an assist for good measure as Plymouth State held off Amherst College, 2-1, in a non-conference game on Wednesday. On Friday she amassed another 37 saves in a 3-1 win over New England College in NEHC action, helping kill off five power play opportunities in the process, and she added a 32-save effort in PSU's 4-1 win over league-rival University of Massachusetts Boston on Saturday.
Since returning from injury on Jan. 23, she has averaged 38.0 saves per game with a 0.962 save percentage and a 1.50 goals against average as the Panthers have gone 4-2-0. Four the nine goals allowed over that time frame came against the opponent's power play.
Maggy notched a goal and three assists over the last week to spark the Panthers' current three-game winning streak. She opened the scoring in the win over Amherst with her 19th career goal to match the Plymouth State career goals record. She added a pair of assists in the win over NEC and chipped in another helper in her 100th career game when the Panthers topped UMass Boston.
She leads Plymouth State with seven goals and 14 points on the season, and her seven assists are the second-most on the team.
The Panthers (6-13-3, 4-6-3 NEHC) head to the University of Southern Maine on Tuesday (Feb. 5) for a league-clash. PSU trails the Huskies by just one point in the standings, and a win would move Plymouth State into to a tie for fourth place. The top four teams will host first round playoff games in two weeks.
