This marks the second time this season she has received the weekly honor (also on Nov. 9).
A junior center from Grand Forks, N.D., Lamoureux scored as pair of goals and assisted on three others for five points last Friday evening (Jan. 20) to earn second star of the game honors as North Dakota blanked the Huskies 10-0 at Ralph Engelstad Arena. Then last Saturday night (Jan. 21), Lamoureux came back to net a three-goal hat trick and one assist for four points and earn first star of the game accolades as UND completed the sweep over SCSU with a 9-0 triumph. In addition to her nine points in the series, she fired 17 shots on goal, including 14 in game two.
Lamoureux’s nine-point weekend elevated her into the national scoring lead with 62 points (25g, 37a) in 25 games played and a nation’s best 2.48 points per game.
