Wisconsin senior hockey standout Sarah Nurse was named the WCHA’s Offensive Player of the Week for the fourth time in her career.
Nurse tallied the game-winning assist in Wisconsin’s 2-1 win over North Dakota in Saturday’s WCHA Final Face-Off semifinal before recording a goal and two assists in Sunday’s 4-1 victory over Minnesota Duluth to help the Badgers clinch their third straight WCHA Final Face-Off championship.
Nurse (Hamilton, Ontario) is tied for the team lead in goals with 24 and is second in points with 52.
Nurse and the top-ranked Badgers will host Robert Morris at LaBahn Arena on Saturday afternoon in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals. The 2 p.m. faceoff is sold-out.
