March 2, 2018

BOSTON, Mass. – Maureen Murphy (Buffalo, N.Y.), Kate Friesen (Altona, Manitoba) and head coach Bob Deraney were recognized at the annual Hockey East Awards banquet on Friday, March 2 at the Royal Sonesta.

Murphy, who already collected All-Rookie Team honors earlier this week, was recognized as the runner-up for Rookie of the Year. She finished behind Boston College’s Daryl Watts, who was a unanimous selection for the award. Murphy was also named a Second Team All-Star. It is just the third time that a rookie Friar has earned that accolade.

Murphy finished the season with a team-leading 28 points. She led the Friars in goals (19) and added nine assists. She also led the team in plus-minus, finishing the season at +19. The rookie forward put together seven multi-point performances in her 36 games played. Providence was 11-1-2 when Murphy tallied a goal and 13-3-3 when she recorded a point.

Kate Friesen, who missed 11 games this season due to injury, was recognized as an All-Star Honorable Mention. The defenseman recorded 13 points on four goals and nine assists. In her 25 games, she racked up a plus-minus of +18, which was second best on the team. She tallied the game-winning goal at Union (Sept. 29) and recorded a career-high three assists at Northeastern (Oct. 29).

Bob Deraney, who led the team to a 17-13-7 overall record and a second place finish in Hockey East this season, was named the runner-up for Coach of the Year. He has won the award three times previously in his career, including last season. This year’s award winner was Richard Reichenbach of Maine.
