McPherson Named Hockey East Rookie of the Week, Leads NCAA
Chatham’s Jessie McPherson has been named the Hockey East Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week.
“Jessie built on her opening win with a fantastic performance in both games at UConn,” said Vermont head coach Jim Plumer. “She really kept us in the second game when UConn pressured us in the first half of the game. She is off to a great start in her career.”
Her 26 save shutout against UConn in a 2-0 win, followed by 29 saves in a 3-2 OT win over UConn the following night, pushed McPherson into the NCAA lead for save percentage and goals against average.
Her save percentage through three games is 0.973 and 0.65 GAA.
Last week, McPherson was the Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week.
