USA Hockey honor
Former UND women’s hockey standout Monique Lamoureux-Morando has been named the 2016 Bob Allen Women’s Player of the Year by USA Hockey.
The award is given annually on a top U.S. women’s hockey player at the international, collegiate, high school or club level.
Monique Lamoureux-Morando helped guide the U.S. Women’s National Team to a gold medal at the 2016 IIHF Women’s World Championship and a first-place finish at the 2015 Four Nations Cup this season. She served as an alternate captain at both events, and provided a veteran leadership presence having participated in 22 events with Team USA spanning 10 years, including two Olympic Winter Games (2010, 2014).
At the IIHF Women’s World Championship in Kamloops, British Columbia, this spring, Lamoureux-Morando was named one of the top-three players of the tournament for the U.S. and a media all-star team member after leading all tournament defensemen with seven points and five assists in five games.
At the 2015 Four Nations Cup in November, Lamoureux-Morando led all tournament defensemen in every offensive category with two goals and four assists in four games and was named the best defenseman of the tournament. In the first of two games against rival Canada in the tournament, Lamoureux-Morando scored the game-winning goal in a 3-0 victory.
She spent the 2015-16 season playing professional hockey with the Minnesota Whitecaps while working as a performance specialist at EXOS, an athletic training and nutrition service.
During her three-years at North Dakota, 2010-13, Lamoureux-Morando was named a CCM All-American twice, and finished as the program’s all-time defensive point leader and second all-time in points with 190.
