Orange senior Abby Moloughney and graduate student Jessica DiGirolamo are the College Hockey America Forward and Defenseman of the Week for January. A native of Ottawa, Ontario, Moloughney earned the CHA forward of the week twice in January and has won it three times in 2021-22, while DiGirolamo has won the CHA defenseman of the week two times in January and five times this season. It is the third CHA monthly award for the Mississauga, Ontario native. The Orange extended their win streak to five games with a sweep of Lindendwood last weekend and moved into a tie for first place in the CHA with the pair of victories.

 

Moloughney, who tallied 11 points (six goals and five assists) in six games in the first month of the calendar year, is tied for third nationally and leads the CHA in power play goals (6) and ranks 21st nationally and third in CHA in goals /game (.54). She set the Syracuse record for career multi-point games with her 28th against Lindenwood. The alternate captain is poised to become fourth Syracuse player to reach 100 career points. She has 99 in 121 career games. She earned ‘Battle at the Burgh’ All-Tournament Team honors for her three goal and one assist performance, leading Syracuse to the championship.

 

DiGirolamo has seven points, including one goal and six assists, and 12 blocks, in six games in January. Against Lindenwood she had two assists in the first game of the series, which broke the Syracuse record for assists by a defenseman. She now owns the Syracuse career records for points (91), goals (32) and assists (59) by a defenseman. It was her 21st multi-point game, which ranks sixth in the Orange record book. DiGirolamo’s 91 career points is eighth in Syracuse history. She earned ‘Battle at the Burgh’ All-Tournament Team honors after leading Syracuse to the championship, where she had three assists and four blocks.

 

Moloughney and DiGirolamo are both part of the Orange power play unit that ranks fourth nationally and first in the CHA in goals and eighth nationally and first in the CHA in percentage (.202). In addition, they are part of the penalty kill unit that ranks sixth nationally.
