Stars of the Month: November

By Kelsey Ann Hagan, 12/11/18, 10:15AM EST


November saw 14 contests and included the 2018-19 debut of the Walpole Express, which came off an impressive performance in the 2018 playoffs. The bulk of games came at the Eastern Women's Hockey Conference's November showcase which was hosted by the Northern Cyclones. 

Taisiya Rykova of the Northern Cyclones has been selected EWHC Star of the Month for November. 

Rykova was stellar for the Cyclones in the month of November, scoring at least a point in every game she played in, including three multi-point performances. The forward led her team to \ victories over the Walpole Express an East Coast Wizards in non-showcase action as well as scoring the equalizing goal against Ontario Hockey Academy Junior in a close game that the Cyclones eventually lost. Rykova, who made her EWHC debut in the 2017 season, ranks first in the league with 15 points and second in goals with nine. 

Other Outstanding Performances: 

October's Forward of the Month Julia Massotta of the East Coast Wizards  continued her impressive 2018-19 campaign into November. So far this season, the rookie leads the league in goals with 10 to date. 


Kelly Robbins of the Northern Cyclones has been selected EWHC Defender of the Month for November. 

In November, Robbins contributed three points from the blue line for the Cyclones with one goal and two assists. Robbins has also been an instrumental part of the Cyclones defense which limited opponents to four total points in November and posted a shut-out performance on home ice against the New Jersey Cyclones on the second day of the November showcase. 

Other Outstanding Performances: 

Neris Archambault of the East Coast Wizards collected a goal from the blue line for the Wizards in November. The forward-turned-defender has scored 5 points so far this season. 


Carmen Correa Rivero of Ontario Hockey Academy Junior has been selected EWHC Goaltender of the Month for November

Correa Rivero earned two clean-sheet victories in November against the New Jersey Colonials and Walpole Express. In the Junior's win over the Express, who gave the 2017-18 runner-up, a run for their money in the 2018 playoffs, were limited to just 17 shots on goal.
