Serdachny Named ECAC Hockey Player of the Month


CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. – Colgate women’s hockey junior forward Danielle Serdachny picked up right where she left off from last season, as the reigning ECAC Hockey Player of the Year has been named the conference’s Player of the Month for October.


Through the team’s 12 games, Serdachny has helped lead the Raiders to a 10-2-0 start behind seven goals and 13 assists. Her 20 points are tied with Kalty Kaltounkova for the team lead, and her +17 rating ranks atop the squad.


Serdachny’s efforts have helped the Raiders remain near the top of the national polls, most recently checking in at No. 4, after sweeping the opening weekend of conference play. She played a big role in the sweep, scoring three goals and adding a pair of assists to earn weekly honors from ECAC Hockey.


Colgate knocked off Dartmouth 4-2 and followed that up with a 5-4 overtime victory over No. 10 Harvard last Saturday. Serdachny potted the walk-off winner in Cambridge 1:08 into overtime.


A native of Edmonton, Alberta, Serdachny has found the back of the net in six of the team’s first 12 games, including a season-high two goals in Colgate’s 7-1 triumph over Syracuse Oct. 14. She racked up career-high six assists in the Raiders’ record-breaking 13-0 victory over RIT on Sept. 25.


Serdachny is coming off a season in which she became Colgate’s first All-American in program history. She was named the conference’s Player of the Year with nine goals and 12 assists in 23 games.



Colgate (10-2, 2-0 ECAC) hosts Brown and Yale this weekend at Class of 1965 Arena. Opening faceoff against the Bears on Friday night is set for 6 p.m., with ESPN+ carrying the livestream.
