Freshman forward Kaitlin Spurling of the fifth-ranked Harvard women’s hockey team has been selected as the ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week, the conference office announced Monday afternoon.

Spurling, who ranks fourth on the Crimson with seven points on four goals and three assists, netted her first career power-play goal, coming at 16:12 of the second period in Harvard’s 2-1 win over Connecticut Dec. 8. The goal, which broke a 1-1 tie, held up for the game-winning tally, as the Crimson extended its unbeaten streak to eight games (6-0-2).

Harvard will return to action Friday, Jan. 8, as the Crimson will visit Ivy League and ECAC Hockey rival Princeton at 3 p.m.
