Athlete of the Week

Ashlee Thatcher

You just tied the record for goals scored in a season in your last game of the year. How does it feel to tie the record?
I am very proud of that fact. It says a lot about my linemates and my teammates. I mean, Nick Jennette is only one man. Obviously we would have liked to win our last game. No one likes to end on a loss. I would have rather had my team go farther in the playoffs than break the record. There’s always next year.What are your best memories of the past season?
Beating MSOE at home on a goal with eight seconds left was unreal. The Minnesota-Crookston series at home was also great. I scored four goals in one game and six on the weekend, so personally it was a good performance.

What are some things that you want to work on personally for next season? As a team?
As a team, we need to work on better celebrations for when we score goals! But seriously, we need to focus on winning the games that we should win. We also need to make sure that we are hitting all our shots.

If you could put any one teammate in the penalty box, who would it be and why?
Corey Garrett, so I don’t have to watch him fore-check on the penalty kill.

Pretend you are a figure skater. What is the one move that you would want to be known for on the ice?
The reverse oilrig, JP with the assist.
