Ott, Lucky earn ECAC West Honors


POTSDAM, N.Y.—SUNY Potsdam Women's hockey players Jordan Ott (Hilton, N.Y./Rochester Edge) and Brittany Lucky (Kanata, Ontario/Ottawa Senators) were honored by the Eastern College Athletic Conference West for their play during the season's opening weekend. Ott was named the conference's Rookie of the Week, while Lucky earned a spot on the honor roll.

Expectations are high for Ott and she got her collegiate career off to a hot start in the Bears' 4-3 victory over Saint Michael's College on Saturday afternoon. It took the freshman forward just 12 minutes and 21 seconds to score her first career goal. She then added an assist on Potsdam's third goal of the contest at 11:15 of the second period to close out her two-point day.

Lucky, Potsdam's senior captain, recorded three assists in the win over the Purple Knights. Her first helper came on Ott's opening tally and she finished her performance with an assist on teammate Sally Mooney's game-winner at 2:11 of the third period.

The Bears are back in action tonight when they host top-ranked North Country Rival Plattsburgh State at 7 p.m. in Maxcy Ice Arena.
