PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College women's ice hockey defenseman Amber Yung (Rockville, Va.) has been named to the New England Hockey Writers Division I Women's New England All Star team. The senior was one of 12 players selected for the honor by a panel of the region's media members and administrators. It is the second year in a row she has received the acknowledgement.
Yung was one of the most consistent defensemen in the country this season, and was recognized as a Second-team All-Star by the Hockey East conference. She played in each of the Friars' 35 games and registered a plus/minus rating of +19. Offensively, she accumulated 16 points (one goal, 15 assists), which tied for sixth among Hockey East defensemen.
