Scottsdale’s Newkirk wins monthly Hockey East rookie honor
Boston College freshman forward and Scottsdale native Makenna Newkirk has been named the Pro Ambitions Hockey East Rookie of the Month for February.
Newkirk picked up 17 points in the month of February, leading all freshman in the NCAA in scoring. She netted six goals and dished out 11 helpers on the month. The 11 assists ranked second in the country among all skaters in the country, behind only teammate Megan Keller.
She recorded at least one point in eight of her team’s nine games, all victories, and registered five multipoint games, including five points in a two-game playoff series.
Back home, Newkirk played one year of high school hockey at Connections Academy.
