The Women’s Hockey Commissioners Association has announced the three finalists for the Women’s Hockey Goalie of the Year Award. They are Northeastern University’s Aerin Frankel, St. Lawrence University’s Lucy Morgan, and Quinnipiac University’s Corinne Schroeder. Frankel and Schroeder are fifth-year students while Morgan is a junior. Voting was carried out by a panel of coaches, administrators and members of the media from across the country.
The three finalists include two from the U.S. and one from Canada. Schroeder and Frankel are still playing as Quinnipiac takes on Syracuse on Thursday in Columbus, OH, and Northeastern will meet the winner of Clarkson vs. Wisconsin in an NCAA Quarterfinal at home on Saturday. The winner will be announced on Thursday, March 17, on the eve of this year’s Frozen Four which will be hosted by Penn State University.
The Women’s Hockey Goalie of the Year Award was established in 2021 and the inaugural winner was Aerin Frankel, the lone goaltender among this year’s Patty Kazmaier Award finalists. Frankel also captured last year’s Kazmaier Award.
