Coyne Wins Warrior Hockey Player of the Month
BU's Davis Nabs Top Rookie; Burt Rolls to Best Goalie Honors
Senior Forward; Palos Heights, Illinois
Coyne leads the nation in goals and points with 15 and 24, respectively, garnering an NCAA-best 2.67 points per game. In nine games played, she has scored two hat tricks and racked up three four-point outings to help the Huskies to a 7-1-1 start and move to No. 8 in the national rankings. She potted a goal in all but one game in which she skated in the months of September and October and has finished October with a plus-20 rating. The Northeastern captain scored her 100th career goal on Oct. 17, becoming just the second player in program history to reach the milestone.
Runner-up: Alex Carpenter - BC (Sr., F; N. Reading, Mass.)
Forward; Pembroke, Massachusetts
Davis led all NCAA rookies in goals per game, averaging 0.67 tallies in eight games played. Her five goals and two assists in October ranked second in Hockey East and included the game-winning strike at Maine Oct. 4. She scored a goal in three of her first four collegiate contests, including a two-goal outing in her second career game as a Terrier. She also is tied for the NCAA lead among freshmen with two power-play goals and is first in Hockey East rookies with 32 shots on goal.
Runner-up: Makenna Newkirk - BC (F., Scottsdale, Ariz.)
Sophomore; Lynn, Massachusetts
Burt continued her sophomore year on The Heights in the same fashion as her stellar rookie career, compiling a 0.89 goals against average and .958 save percentage through nine games. In those contests, she has recorded five shutouts, including her current three-game shutout streak, and allowed just eight total goals. She has yet to allow a goal in Hockey East play, stopping all 69 shots she has faced in four league games totaling 239:42 of work. The five shutouts rank second nationally and she made a career high 32 stops in the second game of her season against Minnesota Duluth.
Runner-up: Meghann Treacy - Maine (Lake Peekskill, N.Y.)
