Brittany Ammerman named WCHA Offensive Player of the Week

A four-point weekend propelled the redshirt junior to WCHA's offensive player of the week honors.

After a hot start, redshirt junior Brittany Ammerman had been quieter in her contributions to the Wisconsin women's hockey team. Heading into last weekend, she still lead the team in point with 28 (14g, 14a), but it wasn't with the frequency she'd showed at the beginning of the season.

But she came roaring back against Bemidji, scoring two goals and tallying an assist on Friday and adding her second-career short-handed goal on Saturday.

She scored her three goals on just nine shots on goal.

Ammerman was named Rookie of the Week once her freshman season, but had never received Offensive Player of the Week recognition from the WCHA.

From the UW release:

The Badgers’ top scorer this season with 31 points in 24 games, she ranks 14th nationally, averaging 1.29 points per game, and her 0.67 goals per game average is the second-best mark in the conference and sixth-best mark in the country.
