Ott wins seventh rookie award, Amanda Lucky to honor roll
POTSDAM, N.Y.—Another strong week earned SUNY Potsdam women's hockey player Jordan Ott (Hilton, N.Y./Rochester Edge) her seventh ECAC West Rookie of the Week award in 14 weeks, while teammate Amanda Lucky (Kanata, Ontario/Clarkson University) was named to the honor roll.
Ott was clutch again for Potsdam with two goals and two assists. The freshman scored a goal in Potsdam's 4-3 overtime loss to Canton on Saturday and then notched the game-winner on the power play to go along with two assists in the Bears' 5-2 win at Canton on Sunday. The two goals gave her the program's single-season record of 19, topping Bears' all-time leading scorer Annmarie Lewis' 2012 mark of 17.
Ott is second on the team in scoring with 30 points on 19 goals and 11 assists. The forward ranks eighth in the nation in scoring (1.36 ppg) overall and second among rookies. She's third in overall goals-per-game (0.86), second in the NCAA in power-play goals (9) and fourth in game-winning goals (4).
Lucky broke out with seven points against the Kangaroos last weekend. The senior recorded a goal and an assist in Potsdam's overtime loss on Saturday. She then exploded for a hat trick and two assists in the Bears 5-2 win at Canton on Sunday. The five-point day marked a personal best for the senior assistant captain.
Lucky is third on the team in scoring with 11 goals and 14 assists for 25 points. She has amassed 43 points (17g, 26a) for Potsdam in less than two seasons in a Bears jersey.
Potsdam has matched its single-season bests for overall and conference wins at 12-8-3 and 7-4-3. The team has clinched its fourth playoff spot in five seasons. The Bears are currently in fourth place with two games against Utica to play. A Plattsburgh sweep of Oswego combined with a Potsdam sweep of Utica would give the Bears the third seed and a home playoff game on March 1. A split with Utica would give the Bears fourth place and bring the Pioneers to Maxcy Ice Arena for the playoffs. A tie and a loss or two losses to Utica would put Potsdam in fifth place and send the Bears back to the Utica Auditorium for the playoff matchup.
Potsdam hosts Utica at 3 p.m. on Saturday. The Bears then head to Utica for the regular season finale at 4 p.m. on Sunday.
