GRAND FORKS, N.D. --- University of North Dakota extended its current winning streak to a program-record eight games last weekend and senior Monique Lamoureux and freshman Meghan Dufault were honored as Western Collegiate Hockey Association Offensive and Rookie Players of the Week, respectively.

Lamoureux, who scored one goal and set up five others for six points to help lead her team to a two-game sweep over visiting Ohio State last weekend, has been named the WCHA Women's Offensive Player of the Week for February 13. She was previously honored as the WCHA Defensive Player of the Week on both November 20 and 28.

A senior assistant captain from Grand Forks, N.D., Lamoureux assisted on both game-winning goals in the series, had a team-high 15 shots on goal and earned a +3 plus/minus rating as second place North Dakota pushed their winning streak to a school-record eight games, all in league play. In a 5-2 victory over the Buckeyes last Friday (February 15), Lamoureux earned three assists and had 11 shots on goal followed by a goal and two assist-effort on Saturday (February 16) in a 3-2 UND triumph. She was named the No. 3 Star of the Game in game two of the series.

Playing in all 32 games this season, Lamoureux ranks fourth in scoring (all games) among WCHA players with 55 points (19g, 36a). Over her 142-game collegiate career, she has amassed 255 points (106g, 149a).

Dufault, who scored three goals in her team's two-game sweep over visiting league rival Ohio State last weekend, is the WCHA Women's Rookie of the Week for February 20. She also earned the weekly honor on January 9.

A freshman right winger from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Dufault scored her first goal of the series last Friday (February 15) night as North Dakota prevailed 5-2 over the Buckeyes. She then came back in game two last Saturday (February 16) with two more goals, including the game-winner at 14:11 of the second period to earn No. 1 Star of the Game honors, as UND followed up with a 3-2 win to push their school-record winning streak to eight games. Along with her three goals in the series, Dufault also put 11 shots on goal and earned a +4 plus/minus rating.
