Syracuse senior Lauren Bellefontaine was named December’s College Hockey America (CHA) Forward of the Month. This is the first CHA honor Bellefontaine has received in the 2021-22 season.
Bellefontaine is currently ranked second in the nation in faceoffs, winning 61% throughout the Orange’s four games in December. Syracuse’s faceoff unit ranks 13th in the country. The Ontario native also notched two goals, one assist and three blocks during this period.
The senior is a starter for SU’s power play and penalty kill units, both of which led the CHA in December. SU’s power play unit is ranked seventh in the nation, and its penalty kill unit is ranked 12th nationally.
The senior has recorded six goals and 10 assists in 21 games played so far this season – ranked third on total points for SU behind forwards Abby Moloughney and Sarah Marchand. Bellefontaine has tallied 73 points in her 116 career games with the Orange, including 27 goals and 46 assists.
In Syracuse’s recent “Battle at the Burgh” victory, the forward totaled three assists – a pair against Boston and one against St. Cloud State. Bellefontaine and the rest of the Orange return to play at Minnesota State in a two-game series beginning on Jan. 7.
