NEW HAVEN, Conn. - A finalist for the NCAA Frozen Four Skills Competition, senior forward Sheila Zingler (Wausau, Wisc.) has been stating her case for inclusion in that event lately with a nine-game point scoring streak. Now she can add ECAC Player of the Week to her resume, as Zingler was picked for that award after a five-point weekend against Cornell and Colgate.
Zingler scored three goals, including the game-winning goal on Friday and the game-tying goal on Saturday, and added two assists as Yale beat the Big Red 5-1 and tied the Raiders 2-2 in overtime. Her three goals came on just five shots and she did not incur a penalty all weekend. She was +5 for the two games and is at +17 for the year.
Zingler has 15 points (7-8-15) during her nine-game streak and a career-high 11 goals and 21 points for the season. She has been held without a point in only four of Yale's 20 games this year. She is tied for seventh all-time at Yale in assists (43) and is 10th in points (75).
This marks the first time a Bulldog has been named ECAC Player of the Week since Erin Duggan `06 won the award Jan. 17, 2006.
Yale returns to action vs. Brown at Ingalls Rink Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.
