Eastvale native, longtime California youth star Barnes wins women’s Hockey East weekly award
Boston College defenseman Cayla Barnes has been tabbed the Hockey East Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week.
Barnes led Hockey East rookies and was tied for fourth nationally in freshman scoring after registering one goal and two assists in BC’s two-win weekend.
She also led all conference blueliners in shots on goal with 10. Against Holy Cross on Friday, one of her two assists came on the game-winning goal and she tallied her first career power-play goal against Maine on Sunday.
Barnes, who leads all BC rookies in points with eight on two goals and six assists, now has a seven-game point streak.
During her youth career, the Eastvale native skated for the Anaheim Jr. Ducks, Anaheim Lady Ducks and Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
