MARCH 19, 2024 — Minnesota left wing Kendall Coyne Schofield, Minnesota right wing Michela Cava and Toronto defender Kali Flanagan have been named the Professional Women’s Hockey League (PWHL) ‘3 Stars of the Week’ for the week ending March 17.




Coyne Schofield collected two goals and two assists s in two games played last week. The output raised her season’s total to 6-7—13 and propelled her into the top five in league scoring with 13 points — tied with Ottawa’s Kateřina Mrázová (6-7—13) and New York’s Ella Shelton (4-9—13) and second in team scoring behind Grace Zumwinkle (9-7—16). Coyne Schofield had a goal and an assist in each contest. She scored the game-winning goal against Boston on March 13,  a 4-0 win for her team, adding the assist on the insurance marker. On March 16, she helped her team break away in the third period against New York, putting up an assist and a goal just 16 seconds apart en route to a 5-1 statement win at home. Minnesota’s captain was +6 in last week’s games, with nine shots on goal, as her team secured two regulation wins. They now sit tied in points in the PWHL with Toronto at 33 apiece, most in the league.





Cava is named to the PWHL 3 Stars of the Week for the first time this season after a breakout week. After entering the week with one goal through her team’s first 16 games Cava had three goals in two games-played.—. In her first contest, against Boston on March 13, Cava provided the insurance marker in a 4-0 win. On March 16, Cava had a pair of goals—the first time she’s recorded multiple points this season. Cava scored the game’s first goal, then added her second at the beginning of the third period, a crucial tally after New York scored late in the second period to make the game 3-1. The 29-year-old more than doubled her season point total last week to 4-1—5 and moved up to a tie for third on Minnesota in goals scored.




In her only game last week, a 2-1 win against Montréal in Pittsburgh on March 17, Flanagan provided the key offensive spark for her team with a goal and an assist. She assisted on Hannah Miller’s first-period goal which opened the game’s scoring. In the second period with the game tied 1-1, Flanagan tallied from just above the goal line — her third goal of the season. Thanks in part to Flanagan’s offensive contribution, Toronto extended their winning streak to 10 games and now sits in first in the PWHL standings. It was the first multi-point game this season for the 29-year-old, who was also +2 as she doubled her season point total to four.
