In three games in the month of February, Calgary Inferno defender Brigette Lacquette tallied four points (two goals and two assists). Three of those points came in a 4–0 win against the Boston Blades on February 5th, Lacquette’s highest-scoring game of the season, after which she was named First Star of the Game. She was also named Second Star in the Inferno’s final game of the regular season, a 5–3 loss to Les Canadiennes de Montreal.
Lacquette had 14 points in 19 games during the regular season, including a game-winning goal against Les Canadiennes de Montreal in December. As the Inferno prepare to defend their Clarkson Cup title, they’ll look to Lacquette to maintain her February form in their playoff series against the Toronto Furies.
