STORRS, Conn. – Coming off a weekend sweep of Northeastern and No. 9 Providence, senior Leah Lum and freshman Natalie Snodgrass both grabbed Hockey East honors on Monday morning in the midst of a four-game winning streak by the UConn women’s ice hockey team.

Lum, who recorded five assists in the two wins, was named Hockey East Player of the Week for the first time this season and second time in her career at UConn. Snodgrass tallied another multi-point weekend, earning her third nod as Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week.

The Huskies (11-11-8, 5-10-5 WHEA) beat the Friars in overtime on Saturday, 3-2, marking the third victory over a nationally-ranked team in the last four games. A four-game winning streak in Hockey East matches the longest for UConn since the 2014-15 season.

Lum and Snodgrass were both instrumental in the team’s success this past weekend at the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum, as the duo combined for one goal and five assists (six total points). They combined for 18 shots on target – 13 coming off the stick of Lum.

With three assists against Northeastern and a pair against Providence, Lum ties Jennifer Chaisson with 57 career helpers for third all-time in program history. She has a team-high 17 assists this season and is nearing the 100-point mark in her career, currently sitting with 97.

Snodgrass notched a goal against Northeastern and an assist against Providence, boosting her team-high season totals in goals (17) and points (30). In program history, she is tied for seventh in points and eighth in goals for a single-season among all players.

The Huskies are tied for eighth place with Vermont – the final spot in the Hockey East playoffs. However, just six points separate UConn from fourth-place New Hampshire. A trip to Vermont for a big weekend series awaits on Friday and Saturday.
