Minnesota State University’s Tracy McCann, a senior from Lakewood, Ohio, has been named the WCHA Women’s Offensive Player of the Week for Jan. 8, 2014.

McCann rang in 2014 with a hot start for the Mavericks last week in four games at All Seasons Arena in Mankato, scoring three goals and firing 19 shots on goal in a Dec. 31-Jan. 1 (3-0, 3-1) non-conference sweep over Lindenwood and a Jan. 4-5 (2-1, 0-1) two-game split with league rival Bemidji State.

A left winger, McCann’s pair of third-period goals against Lindenwood on Jan. 1 bookended a three-goal period in a 3-1 victory and series sweep. She was named the first star of the game. She backed that up by opening the scoring with a brilliant re-direction in the first period of Minnesota State’s 2-1 victory over Bemidji State on Jan. 4.

McCann’s three goals and 19 shots led all Mavericks last week, while her three points tied for the team-lead and +2 rating was third-best on the squad. She has generated 12 points (7g, 5a) while playing in all 22 games this season and continues to pace the squad with a +6 plus/minus rating while tying for 15th in the conference in goal scoring.
