One of Michigan’s own is in the running to be named the top female college hockey player of the year.
USA Hockey announced today that Farmington Hills native and Boston College senior defender Megan Keller has been named a top-3 finalist for the 2019 Patty Kazmaier Award as the top player in women’s college hockey.
Keller, a HoneyBaked alum and 2018 Olympic gold medalist with Team USA, has posted 18 goals and 23 assists for 41 points this season in 33 games from the blue line, good for 12th in the nation among all skaters.
She has been named to the Top 10 list for the Kazmaier three times, but this is her first year advancing to the final three.
This season, Keller has broken Hockey East single-season records for goals and points by a defenseman.
Wisconsin forward Annie Pankowski and Clarkson forward Loren Gabel are the other two finalists.
The winner will be announced during the 2019 Women’s Frozen Four on March 23rd in Hamden, Conn.
