Penn State Women’s Hockey’s Natalie Heising Named CHA Player Of The Year

Penn State women’s hockey star Natalie Heising was named College Hockey America’s Player of the Year for the 2021-22 season Wednesday afternoon.

Heising is now the second Nittany Lion ever to be named CHA Player of the Year, following teammate Kiara Zanon, who won the award last season.

Heising also received the CHA Co-Individual Sportsmanship Award for the second straight season.

Heising has 74 goals, 63 assists, and 147 points across her 155 career games, all of which are program highs. At the end of the 2021-2022 regular season, Heising scored at least one goal in 26 of 32 games. During that time, she held two seven-game point streaks at two different times.

The Wayzata, Minnesota native was the first Nittany Lion to record 20 or more points for four seasons, and one of two to score 50 career goals. Heising surpassed Penn State’s all-time leading scorer, Laura Bowman, after scoring her 62nd goal in overtime against Syracuse.

Heising and the Nittany Lions begin postseason play next weekend with a trip to Syracuse. Penn State will play Mercyhurst in the CHA Tournament semifinals at 4 p.m. on Friday, February 25.
