Boston College sophomore forward Alex Carpenter, recently tabbed a Second-Team All-American, added to her breakout season after getting voted as New England's Division I Women's Player of the Year. The North Reading, Mass., native directed Hockey East in scoring this year with 69 points (32-27-69), yielding Hockey East Player of the Year honors on March 8. Carpenter touted a league-record 24-game point streak from Oct. 21 to Feb. 2.

Katie King Crowley of Boston College collected New England Division I Women's Coach of the Year honors after leading the Eagles to their most successful season in program history. The sixth-year head coach strung together a record of 27-6-3 en route to BC's third consecutive Frozen Four appearance. Crowley was named Hockey East Coach of the Year and also recognized as one of six finalists for the FlexxCoach/AHCA Division One Women's Hockey Coach of the Year award.

The Women's Division I New England All-Star Team consists of six forwards, four defenseman and two goaltenders.

Carpenter headlines the All-New England forwards corps for the second-consecutive season while Northeastern's Kendall Coyne (37-31-68), Quinnipiac's Kelly Babstock (28-27-55) and Harvard's Jillian Dempsey (24-21-45) also make a return trip to the New England Women's Division I All-Star Team. Boston University junior forward Marie-Phillip Poulin (19-36-55) and Boston College rookie Haley Skarupa (24-29-53) get their first nod to round out the All-New England forward contingent.

Eagles' senior Blake Bolden (6-23-29) is the only defenseman to return to the All-New England blue line unit. Quinnipiac senior Regan Boulton (6-24-30), BU junior Shannon Doyle (6-18-24) and Boston College sophomore Emily Pfalzer (4-13-17) earn their first All-New England honors to make up the four-man defensive listing.

BC senior Corinne Boyles (22-5-1) and Vermont junior Roxanne Douville (5-15-4) are the two New England Women's Division I All-Star goaltenders. Boyles was 11th in the NCAA in save percentage (.927) and finished 12th in the country with a 1.83 goals against average, winning 22-of-28 starts. Douville's .923 save percentage in conference action was tops in Hockey East.
