And we’re back with another edition of The ACHA Beauty of The Week. This Weeks beauty goes out to Leah MacArthur of the University of Colorado – Boulder. Now, let’s break this down point by point.
#2 Points leader in Women’s ACHA D1 (27 goals, 14 assists, 41 points)
Ricky Bobby would say if you’re not first your last but I’m still about it. Leah has entered the red light district 27 times in 19 games, 5 coming off the PPer. Am I jealous? Absolutely. The only Power Play time I ever got was when our head coach only dressed two lines and he had no other choice. I spent my time in practice on the PK trying to shut down players like her and I for one am blessed as hell that I didn’t have to try and stop Leah. Wouldn’t have been a good look for me.
Reached her 100th career point as a Junior last weekend (103 total)
I think I’ve said this before but during my entire hockey career combined I don’t think I’ve ever even sniffed 100 points. Oh wait, just kidding.
Yeah that’s right, 104 points in beer league the other year. So I guess it’s not THAT special, but still pretty ballin’. Oh, she’s a Junior also. Can she get to 150 by the time she’s done? Time will tell but if I was a betting guy, I’m going all in on MacArthur.
She’s funny as hell and the nicest person you’ll ever meet but don’t piss her off, she doesn’t mind taking a seat in the box if she gets to mess you up
Leahs got A+ clout in the lockeroom and that’s honestly what this award is all about. Everyone needs that teammate in the room that can keep things light but also can feed you your lunch when needed. 39 PIMS in 19 games is something the girls can rally around.
The only people in the league that can keep up with her are NCAA transfers
ANOTHER reason why this award is around. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired hearing about how sweet NCAA players are. Yeah, they get free sticks, get to sign some sweet NCAA forms and probably have a great Instagram feed, but ACHA is where you find the love of the game. Keep on wheelin’ and dealin’ girl.
Also played as a part of Team USA in the World University team in Almaty Kazakstan last winter
I’m a HUGE USA guy. To the point where I’ve tried to brainstorm any sort of sport where I could represent our country but the only thing I can up with is a Chiptole Burrito relay race, which unfortunately isn’t recognized at the national level. I don’t know what the stars on the helmet are all about but who cares. If you don’t get pumped up for the National Anthem, the best Flag in the world and home to back to back world war champs then please go to a different website.
Leah, congrats. You’ve earned it.
If you’re new to the ACHA Beauty of The Week blog read through this where you can figure out what you need to do to get your school or a teammate on here.
So here’s what you have to do. Do you know a player that goes above and beyond the call of duty? Do you know a player that is the life of the party and deserves acknowledgement? If you know anyone who deserves the recognition of being The ACHA Beauty of the week, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. First things first, include the School and Player Name in the subject. After this, along with a picture of the player, give us a brief description of why this player should be given this illustrious honor. I want more than just— “This player scored 4 goals and had an assist this weekend.” To me, that just means they’re a try hard. The background story is just as important as the accolades. This player has to embody the meaning of the ACHA and club hockey. I’m talking on ice as well as off ice performance and the ability to take over a room as a club hockey god or goddess. What’s up ladies?
Now it’s up to you guys. Go out there and share the hell out of this. Retweet it, like it, tag your teammates– whatever you have to do, Tell your coach, tell your teammates, tell your friends and family— I don’t care. I want this award to mean something to all of you beauties out there. It’s time to put club hockey on the map within the hockey community. At the very least, it’ll be something funny to talk about during Kangaroo Court.
We’ve recieved T’s from @pch_apparel that we will be sending out to our winners during winter break! Send in your nominees and lets get it poppin’.
