The SDHL’s top scorer from Sweden is 27 year old, Luleå HF forward, Emma Nordin. She is one of the few in the top 25 on Total Points who has never played in the NCAA. She did however score the emptynetter in her club’s 4-2 in the Champions Cup against NWHL’s Metropolitan Riveters. For the second week in a row a Luleå player scored the infamous Gordie Howe hattrick, this time Nordin sat out for 2+2 for Fighting with Brynäs IF, defender, Wilma Carlsson. Both Nordin and Carlsson would score a goal after serving their penalties.
