Athletes are considered for the weekly top performer poll only if their stats are entered on the MN Girls' Hockey Hub by 10 a.m. on Sundays. If coaches or members of their staffs need access to enter stats, please email mnhubs@sportngin.com.


Top performer winners

Anna Julius, Woodbury. The senior goaltender earned her first shutout of the season, stopping all 39 shots she faced to back the Royals’ 3-0 win at Cretin-Derham Hall.

Jennifer Rupp, Irondale/St. Anthony. The freshman goaltender’s first shutout came at a perfect time, as the Knights needed every one of her 33 saves to edge White Bear Lake 1-0 on Dec. 7.

Top performer candidates

Allie Bussey, Hibbing/Chisholm. The senior forward contributed a season-high six points in the Bluejackets’ 10-1 victory against International Falls on Dec. 3. Her first point of the game was a shorthanded assist — her second short-handed point of the season. Bussey scored twice and had four assists to pace the Bluejackets.

Mia Fjelsta, Albert Lea. Fjelsta had a stellar week for the Tigers, scoring one-third of the teams’ 21 goals during back-to-back wins at Waseca on Dec. 3 (11-4) and Austin on Dec. 5 (10-2). The senior forward scored four goals — two unassisted — against Waseca then recorded a hat trick and two assists at Austin.

Greta Freed, Rochester John Marshall. The junior forward tallied six total points in the Rockets’ victories over Rochester Mayo on Dec. 3 (5-2) and Fairmont on Dec. 7 (5-3). Freed recorded a hat trick against Mayo — including a shorthanded goal — and then led the win against Fairmont with two goals and an assist within a 12-minute span during the second period.

Ryleigh Furlong, Farmington. The junior goaltender earned her third consecutive win during the Tigers’ 5-1 defeat of Lakeville North on Dec. 7. Furlong outdueled the opposing goaltender, posting a .964 save percentage.

Margaret Grove, Red Wing. Grove accounted for all of the Wingers’ goals as they blanked Rochester Century 5-0 on Dec. 5. The senior defender scored midway through the second period and assisted on all other goals for the Wingers, including a power-play tally in the third period.

Anna Julius, Woodbury. The senior goaltender earned her first shutout of the season, stopping all 39 shots she faced to back the Royals’ 3-0 win at Cretin-Derham Hall.

Kennedy Lemke, Prairie Centre. Lemke, an eighth-grade goaltender, has had a busy season, facing 38 or more shots in 10 of the 11 games she’s played. Despite three Blue Devil losses last week, Lemke posted a .875 save percentage, stopping 151 of 169 shots she faced.

Allison Pitlick, Centennial. Pitlick tallied a power-play goal and an assist in the Cougars’ 3-2 triumph over Blaine on Dec. 3 before scoring a season-high four goals in the Cougars’ 5-1 win against Roseville two days later. It was the third multi-goal game of the season for Pitlick, a senior forward.

Jennifer Rupp, Irondale/St. Anthony. The freshman goaltender’s first shutout came at a perfect time, as the Knights needed every one of her 33 saves to edge White Bear Lake 1-0 on Dec. 7.

Olivia Williamson, Faribault. The senior recorded back-to-back four-goal games, leading the Falcons to wins against Mankato East/Loyola (6-1) on Dec. 3 and Rochester John Marshall (9-0) on Dec. 5. Of her eight goals, Williamson scored twice on the power play and once shorthanded.
