    I mean, it is basically a top scorer award. That's why I advocated so hard for a separate goalie award. Goalies had to be historically good to get it.

    As far as the process, from the Patty site: "The award selection process begins in February, when NCAA Division I women’s ice hockey head coaches are asked to nominate players for the award. Players who are nominated by two or more coaches are then placed on an official ballot, which is sent back to the coaches to vote for the top 10 finalists. An independent accounting firm tabulates the ballots."

    Looks like someone jumped the gun on the Patty Kazmaier Award preliminary list announcement. Article no longer available. I'm sure it is an amazing accomplishment nonetheless.

    Wow...three Penn State players on the initial Patty Kaz ballot? From the article: "...additional selection criteria including outstanding individual and team skills, sportsmanship, clutch performance, personal character, competitiveness, and academic and civic involvement." How well do the voters stick to that, or is the Patty Kaz basically just a "top scorer" award? Pretty cool to have three players get recognized that way.

    Some tournament details: as of right now players will be getting two tickets for family members.
    How much would it cost to become a player's adopted uncle on tournament weekend?

    The podcast is always entertaining. I think it would help recruitment if they did it more often.

    From what I have learned is that the regular season games are dictated from what the conference the schools football team dictated. Being the Big 10 allowed parents we were able to watch. ultimately it is up to the individual university and their facilities. Being the Erie city arena is the host I would imagine that parents will be able to watch the frozen 8.

    As of right now players will be getting two tickets for family members. This could change depending on pandemic numbers. We have been lucky as Penn State has been the only University to allow parents and friends to watch. The light is at the end of the tunnel as I got my first shot this past Saturday and will get my 2nd on March 3.
    So does this mean that there is not a blanket State directed prohibition on fans? That its an individual university decision? And does that mean there is a chance fans will be allowed at the National Championships in Erie?

    Being four lines deep will be a big help to this team, especially with the speed they play at. Kampersal likes to keep shifts as short as possible, and a fourth line would let him do that. Four good lines in a tournament will keep these guys at 100 MPH.

    3. The move of Gough up with Heising and Zanon has been a stroke of genius...
    When Kampersal moved Olivia Wallin down and put Julie Gough on the top line, I was wondering if Wallin just wasn't "on", or what. You're right...it was a great move, and you see what Julie Gough has done being matched up with Heising and Zanon. Gough brings some size to the top line, too, and that's great for how she plays the front of the net.

    Four more games and then it's tournament time.

    Also, Penn State caught up with one of the original women's hockey players, Lindsay Reihl: https://gopsusports.com/news/2021/2/...say-reihl.aspx

    Take aways from watching 4 games.
    1. Even though Zanon an heising get most of the roar.(Pun) This team is deep. Will get even deeper when they get Promesberger back next week. Will have 4 quality lines in playoffs.
    2. Lantto's minutes got expanded she is a true power forward and brings some size to the lineup.
    3. the move of Gough up with Heising and Zanon has been a stroke of genius as both Gough and Heisng are on point streaks allowing Wallin to play with Maachado Weiss The results were evident as Wallin is lighting it up.
    4. We saw Connelly and ciarochhi on the penalty kill angainst RIT and they proved to be worthy of more time on this unit which will be huge going into Playoffs.
    5. Hopefully they stay away from the Mens team as there are 12 positive case of Covid and they are shut down.

    Natalie Heising is three points away from her 100th career point. She's close to setting a program best if she can squeak past Amy Petersen (101) and Laura Bowman (104). If she does decide to play a fifth year next season, she'll obviously set a new record that isn't likely to be beaten anytime soon, though Petersen and Bowman each played four seasons, of course. What's in the water up in Minnesota anyway??
