University of Wisconsin forward Brette Pettet has been named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association's rookie of the week after she scored a hat trick last Friday.
Pettet had three goals as the Badgers clinched a series sweep of Mercyhurst.
The freshman right wing from Kentville, Nova Scotia, had one assist through her first three games before breaking out in the team's fourth contest of the season.
The Badgers (4-0) moved into the No. 1 spot in national rankings by USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine this week. They play a non-conference series at Syracuse on Friday and Saturday.
