Tabb Selected as a Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award CandidatePROVIDENCE, RI -- Freshman forward Jessica Tabb (Springfield, Mass.) was named a candidate for the inaugural Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award, which will be presented to the women's intercollegiate varsity ice hockey player of the year who represents the highest standards of personal and team excellence during the 1997-98 season.
There are 11 candidates hailing from nine different colleges and universities and of the 11 candidates, five are seniors, one is a junior, two are sophomores and three are freshmen. The recipient of The Patty Kazmaier Award will be chosen by an 11 member selection committee comprised of women's intercollegiate varsity ice hockey coaches, representatives of the print and broadcast media, and a representative of USA Hockey. Other selection criteria includes outstanding individual and team skills, sportsmanship, performance in the "clutch", personal character, competitiveness and a love of hockey. Consideration will also be given to academic achievement and civic involvement.
Only a freshman, Tabb's accomplishments have not gone unrecognized. She leads the Friars in goals (18), points, (31), and short-handed goals (two). Tabb leads all freshmen and is second in among all players in the Eastern College Athletic Conference in scoring with 25 points (12-13) in league play. She has been honored as the ECAC Rookie of the Week twice and has recorded three multiple-goal games, including a hat trick in a 4-3 loss to Northeastern University on January 3, 1998. Tabb also has nine-multiple point games.
Three finalists for The Patty Kazmaier Award will be announced March 13 in conjunction with the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championship. The first-ever recipient of the award will be announced at The Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award Ceremony, set for March 20 in Boston, Mass.
