ALBANY, N.Y. — ECAC Hockey has announced that the winner of the 2021 Best Forward award is Colgate University junior Danielle Serdachny.
Serdachny (Edmonton, Alb.) was the top offensive player in ECAC Hockey this season, recording 13 points on seven goals and six assists during league play. She had 20 points overall, making it the second straight season that she reached the 20-point mark after an All-Rookie campaign in 2019-20.
Her scoring touch this season came when her team needed it most, as six of her nine goals came in the third period. She led the league in game-winning goals, scoring three, including two against league opponents. Her consistency throughout the season was key for Colgate, as Serdachny recorded at least one point in 14 of 20 games, and had six multi-point outings.
A solid two-way player, Serdachny was also impactful on the defensive end, blocking 17 shots and helping a back checking unit that allowed just 1.83 goals per-game in 2020-21.
