Hockey East players have swept the Women’s Hockey Commissioners’ Association’s national awards for November, marking the first time one league has won all three awards in the same month.

Providence sophomore Maureen Murphy has been named Player of the Month, while teammate and senior goaltender Madison Myers was awarded top goaltender and Northeastern freshman Chloe Aurard was voted as the nation’s best rookie.

Murphy helped lead Providence to a perfect 8-0-0 record in November, scoring five of the Friars’ game-winning goals in the month, a total that lead all NCAA players. Overall, she netted eight goals and six assists for 14 points, tied for the most goals and second-most points of any Women’s Hockey East player in the month. She racked up four multi-point games, including two outings with three points.

Aurard paced all WHEA players with 15 points on seven goals and eight assists in just seven games in November. She picked up at least one point in all seven outings and had multiple points in six appearances.

Myers led the nation with eight wins in November, posting a flawless 8-0-0 record on the month, compiling wins in each start she made for the Friars. She allowed one goal or fewer in six of the eight games she started in November and posted one shutout.
