Ott, Rodrigue earn ECAC West Honors


POTSDAM, N.Y.—SUNY Potsdam women's hockey players Jordan Ott (Hilton, N.Y./Rochester Edge) and Alexane Rodrigue (Monkland, Ontario/Bemidji State) were honored by the Eastern College Athletic Conference West for their play during the week ending Nov. 24. Ott earned her second Rookie of the Week award this month and Rodrigue makes her first appearance on the conference honor roll.

Ott, a freshman forward, scored two goals this week for the Bears. She scored in Potsdam's contest at Hamilton on Tuesday and added the game-winner on the power play against Cortland on Saturday. She leads the team in goals and power-play goals and is second in points this season. She has five goals and two assists in eight games.

Rodrigue, a sophomore goalie, went 1-0-1 in two starts last weekend and allowed just one goal on 54 shots in 125 minutes. On Friday, she stopped all 24 shots she faced for her first career shutout in a scoreless tie at Cortland. She then allowed just one goal in the Bears 3-1 win over the Red Dragons on Saturday. The third period goal she allowed ended her scoreless streak at 129 minutes and 51 seconds. This season, Rodrigue is 3-3-1 with a .911 save percentage and a 3.40 goals against average.

The Bears are now off until Tuesday, Dec. 3 when they host SUNY Canton for the first meeting between the teams as varsity programs.
