2010-11 Ice Hockey Athletes of the Week

February 14, 2011-February 20, 2011

Christine Dickinson, Forward, 5-3, Senior, Layton, Utah/Shattuck-St. Mary's
Dickinson played a crucial role in helping the Blugolds gain home ice in the first round of the NCHA playoffs, the first time the Blugolds have hosted in program history. With the Blugolds needing a win in order to host, Dickinson stepped up and scored the eventual game-winner at 14:17 in the third period. The goal was her seventh of the season and third game-winner. The Blugolds went on to beat St. Scholastica 3-2 on Saturday while the teams tied 1-1 in overtime Friday. Dickinson finished with seven shots this weekend.

February 7, 2011-February 13, 2011

Toni Simones, Forward, 5-4, Junior, Rosemount, Minn.
Simones picked up two assists in two games at Adrian College (Mich.) this weekend. On Friday, she assisted on both of the Blugolds' goals, one at 8:25 in the second and one at 13:34 in the third, but the Blugolds came up just short 3-2. She also had five shots over the weekend. Simones is currently second on the team with 16 points and leads the Blugolds with 11 assists on the season.

January 31, 2011-February 6, 2011

Mara Stormer, Goalie, 5-4, Sophomore, Waunakee, Wis.
The Blugolds pushed their unbeaten streak to 10 games this weekend after defeating Concordia University (Wis.) 5-3 on Friday before tying the Falcons 2-2 in overtime Saturday. She played all 125 minutes and stopped 67 shots, 39 of which came on Saturday. She now has a 7-1-4 record on the season and holds a .911 save percentage and 1.52 goals-against average.

January 24, 2011-January 30, 2011

Mara Stormer, Goalie, 5-4, Sophomore, Waunakee, Wis.
Stormer helped the Blugolds stay undefeated in 2011 with a win and a tie against Lake Forest College (Ill.) at home this weekend. In Friday's game, Stormer stopped 25 shots to help the Blugolds to a 1-1 tie while she recorded her first shutout of the season, and the team's fifth, in a 2-0 victory Saturday. In the win, she stopped 20 shots to improve to 6-1-3 on the season. The five shutouts ties for a school record for most in a season. Eau Claire also finished with a 6-0-2 record in January, setting a school record for consecutive games without a loss, and it was the first time in program history the Blugolds did not lose a game in the month of January.

January 17, 2011-January 23, 2011

Kristin Faber, Forward, 5-8, Senior, Austin, Minn.
Faber helped the Blugolds remain undefeated in the new year as they won two games against UW-Stevens Point, a team that received votes in the latest poll. On Friday in a 5-3 win, Faber picked up the fourth hat-trick of her career. She scored at 3:34 in the second period to tie the game at 1-1 and again at 19:12 in the period to tie the game at 3-3. Faber then scored a short-handed goal at 15:48 in the third period, which eventually proved to be the game-winner. In Saturday's 3-1 win, Faber scored on an empty net with 39 seconds to play. She now has 14 goals on the season to go along with nine assists. "Faber's efforts this weekend were that of a true leader and great competitor," head coach Mike Collins said. "With a young, beat up team, she took the team on her back and scored four times at critical moments to lead to the first-ever sweep of Stevens Point in program history."
