COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The winner of this year’s Patty Kazmaier Award, which goes to the best player in NCAA women’s hockey, will be revealed at 1:30 p.m. Friday.

USA Hockey, which runs the award, will announce the winner on its YouTube and Facebook channels, showcasing highlights of all the top 10 finalists before the winner is announced.

The three finalists are Clarkson University’s Elizabeth Giguere, Wisconsin’s Abby Roque, who was born in Potsdam, and Northeastern’s Alina Mueller.

Clarkson’s Loren Gabel won the award last year and Jamie Lee Rattray was Clarkson’s first winner in 2014. The first Patty Kazmaier winner was Colton native Brandy Fisher, who played for New Hampshire, in 1998.
