Team Canada’s Caroline Ouellette of Montreal has been named one of three finalists for the Patty Kazmaier Award, which goes to the top player in women's Division 1 U.S. college hockey.

Minnesota forwards Natalie Darwitz and Krissy Wendell are the other two finalists. The field was reduced from 10 candidates to three Monday.

Ouellette, a veteran of Canada’s national women's hockey team, is a senior and captain of the Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs. She ranked fourth in the U.S. in points per game (2.44) and assists per game (1.47) and was one of only four players to reach 70 points this season.

The five-foot-11, 171-pound power forward had 31 goals and 47 assists in 32 games this season for the Bulldogs. She has won three world championships and an Olympic gold medal with the Canadian team and will play in next month's world championship in Linkoping, Sweden.

This year's recipient will be announced March 26 during the NCAA Frozen Four women's championship in Portsmouth, N.H.

Canadian national team forward Jennifer Botterill of Winnipeg was a two-time winner of the award (2001, 2003) when she played for Harvard.
