GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- University of North Dakota forward Josefine Jakobsen earned Western Collegiate Hockey Association co-Offensive Player of the Week for her efforts in leading UND to its first-ever sweep at Minnesota State.

Jakobsen, a sophomore from Aalborg, Denmark, put together a nine-point weekend with two three-goal hat tricks to power visiting North Dakota to a two-game conference road sweep at Minnesota State.

In a 4-2 victory last Friday (Feb. 1), Jakobsen scored three goals, including a shorthanded game-winner, and was the No. 1 Star of the Game. Then last Saturday (Feb. 2), she came back with six more points, including another hat trick and an assist on the game-winner, to again earn No. 1 Star of the Game honors as UND prevailed by an 8-2 count.

In addition to her nine points, she had 13 shots on goal and earned a +6 plus/minus rating. In 28 games this season, Jakobsen has 36 points (14g, 22a).
