(ISN) – MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin women’s hockey freshman Emily Clark has been named the WCHA Offensive Player of the Week for the week of Jan. 30-Feb. 2, 2015, the league announced Tuesday.
Clark had a career day last Friday, as the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, native tallied two goals, including the game winner, and an assist in UW’s 3-0 win over Minnesota State. It marked the second time that Clark had tallied three points in her career, as she recorded two goals and an assist in her collegiate debut, a 4-1 win over No. 10 Minnesota Duluth on Oct. 3.
On Saturday, Clark assisted on the Badgers’ game-tying goal in their 5-1 win at Minnesota State. She finished the weekend +4 and had a shooting percentage of .222.
A member of the Canadian National Team that competed at the 2014 Four Nations Cup, Clark ranks fifth on the UW squad in points with 21 this season, while her eight goals are tied for the sixth most on the team.
Clark and the No. 3 Badgers host No. 7 Minnesota Duluth in a top-10 showdown at LaBahn Arena this weekend. Faceoff on Friday is scheduled for 7 p.m., while Saturday’s contest begins at 7:30 p.m.
