14 – With two more road wins this past weekend over the Boston Blades, the Kunlun Red Star have now extended their current winning streak to 14 straight games. With a 16-4 record, the China-based club is tied for first place with Montréal, who was the last team to defeat the Red Star by a 5-3 margin on November 12.

9 – In a Sunday afternoon offensive display, Les Canadiennes forwards Sarah Lefort and Katia Clement-Heydra combined for nine goals. The five-goal afternoon from Lefort lifted her 2017-18 total to nine, matching her season total from a year ago. Meanwhile, with four goals Clement-Heydra surpassed the 20 point mark (11 G, 11 A) for the first time in her CWHL career. The St-Bruno, Que. native previously recorded 20 points (7 G, 13 A) in 2015-16.

1st – In what is becoming a regular occurrence weekend to weekend in the CWHL, three more players recorded their first career goals. Vanke Rays rookie forward Xin He notched her first career marker in the middle of the second period of Saturday night’s matchup in Montréal. Earlier in that same game, Les Canadiennes forward Tracy-Ann Lavigne recorded her first as the fourth goal in a five-goal first period for Montréal. Then in Toronto the next day, Calgary Inferno defence Megan Grenon sent in a booming point shot late in the second period to register her first career goal.

3 – Recording a three-point (1 G, 2 A) game in the Furies 3-2 Saturday night upset win over the Inferno, 2016 CWHL draft pick Jenna Dingeldein surpassed the 10 point plateau for the first time in her career. The Toronto, Ont., native added another goal the following day to help the Furies continue their current three-game winning streak, pushing Dingeldein’s season total to 12 points (7 G, 5 A) through 23 games played.
