Reclaiming her spot atop the conference scoring lead, fourth-year Pandas forward Alex Poznikoff torched the Lethbridge Pronghorns during a two-game Pandas sweep.

Poznikoff finished the weekend with two goals and four assists, leading the Pandas to a pair of convincing wins, as they also jumped back atop the Canada West hockey standings. 

The Edmonton native recorded two assists, two shots and a +2 rating on Friday night, as Alberta opened their series with a 4-1 win in Lethbridge. She then followed that up with a four-point performance on Saturday, scoring twice while adding two assists and a +3 rating in their 5-1 win. 

Through 25 games, Poznikoff leads Canada West with 14 goals and 35 points, which also represents a new career-high. Poznikoff’s previous best was her 25-point season in 2016/17.

The Pandas will finish their regular season this weekend with a home-and-home series against Calgary. They will also get a bye through to the semifinal series, which they will host at Clare Drake Arena in two weeks.
