PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College senior Genevieve Lacasse continues to rack up honors as she concludes her Friar ice hockey career. The goaltender has been named a New England All-Star by the New England Hockey Writers' Association.
It is the fourth time in the last three seasons a Friar has earned the prestigious honor. Senior Ashley Cottrell (Sterling Heights, Mich.) was recognized in 2010, and defenseman Amber Yung '11 (Rockville, Va.) earned the distinction in 2010 and 2011.
Each year, the all-stars are voted on by all Division I coaches and respective media outlets in New England.
It is the latest in a full list of accomplishments for Lacasse, who is currently taking part in Hockey Canada's pre-World Championship training camp in Ottawa. She is vying to be one of the goaltenders selected to represent her country at the World Championships, April 7-14 in Burlington, Vt. Earlier this month she was recognized as a Hockey East Second Team All-Star. She was named to the All-Tournament team after playing over 179 minutes of playoff hockey without allowing a goal. Also this season, she set new Providence College records for career victories (64), career games played (127), career saves (3,482) and career shutouts (20).
