Northeastern senior goaltender and criminal justice and psychology major Aerin Frankel was honored Saturday with the Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award as the top player in NCAA Division 1 women’s ice hockey. 

“There have been so many amazing players that have come before me, and to have my name on a list alongside them is very humbling and makes me very proud,” said Frankel. “To represent our university and to get another goalie’s name on that list is pretty cool, too. All the recipients of this award are part of a very special group, and I’m really excited to join them.”

Frankel set an NCAA record with her save percentage of .966 this season, and she led the country in wins (20), goals against average (0.81), winning percentage (.891), and shutouts (9), earning her the national Goalie of the Year award by unanimous vote. She guided Northeastern (22-2-1) to its first No. 1 ranking, its fourth successive Hockey East championship, and its first Frozen Four before losing in overtime of the NCAA final, 2-1, to defending champion Wisconsin.
