Wickenheiser picks up university athlete award
National women's team captain Hayley Wickenheiser is fitting in nicely with the Calgary Dinos.
The 32-year-old forward was named Canada West female athlete of the week Tuesday. Wickenheiser, who made her university hockey debut Oct. 8, helped the Dinos earn a two-game sweep of Alberta last weekend.
Wickenheiser scored a goal and added an assist in a 2-1 overtime victory on Friday night. She scored both goals in a 2-0 win the next day. She leads the Canada West scoring race with 19 points in eight games.
Wickenheiser will leave the Dinos for the next two weeks to play for Canada at the upcoming Four Nations Cup. She won a gold medal at the Vancouver Olympics earlier this year.
University of Saskatchewan soccer player Josh Northey was named male athlete of the week.
