Senior captain Michelle Karvinen has been named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association's Offensive Player of the Week, the conference announced on Wednesday.
The native of Rodovre, Denmark helped the University of North Dakota women's hockey team to a road sweep of St. Cloud State, Oct. 25-26, scoring four goals and picking up one assist.
Karvinen scored two goals in both games of the series, including a game-winning goal, a power-play goal and a shorthanded goal.
Her two goals in Friday's contest were the only two UND goals of the game. In the series finale, she scored a shorthanded goal with less than one second remaining in the first period to open the scoring. She later helped on both of UND's power-play goals, scoring one and assisting on Susanna Tapani's third-period tally.
Karvinen currently leads the WCHA, and is tied for the most goals in the nation, with seven. She is also the current active career-points leader in the WCHA with 120 points, stemming from 49 goals and 71 assists.
This is the second honor for Karvinen, having been named Offensive Player of the Week on Oct. 16. It is the third weekly honor for North Dakota this year.
North Dakota heads back on the road this weekend to face off against WCHA foe Bemidji State on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1-2. Both games are slated to begin at 2:07 p.m
