PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Two members of the Providence College women’s ice hockey team earned Hockey East end-of-year awards in announcement made by the league on March 1, 2017. Cassidy Carels (Bruxelles, Manitoba) won the Sportsmanship Award and Whitney Dove (Port Moody, Britsh Columbia) was a unanimous selection to the Pro-Ambitions All-Rookie Team.
Carels, the senior forward, served as a captain in the 2016-17 campaign. She led the Friars to 17 wins, the first time since the 2010-11 season. Carels collected a career-high in points on the year, with 37. Her 37 points makes her the first Friar to record more than 35 points since Kristin Gigliotti in the 2005-06 season (39). With +14 rating on the season, Carels collected 18 goals and 19 assists, including nine multi-point games. Carels completed her career as a Friar with 108 points (48 goals, 60 assists).
The last Friar to win the Sportsmanship Award was Beth Hanrahan in 2015.
Dove is a unanimous selection to the Hockey East All-Rookie Team as a defenseman. Dove, tied for the fifth-most points on the team, finished her debut season with 23 points. With five goals and 18 assists, the freshman tied for the third most points by a defenseman in Hockey East. Of her five goals, three were game-winning tallies.
The last Friar to be named to the All-Rookie Team was Christina Putigna (Grimsby, Ontario) in 2016.
The Hockey East First, Second, and Honorable Mention All-Star Teams will be announced later in the week, along with Player, Rookie, and Coach of the Year.
