Harvard senior forward and tri-captain Liza Ryabkina has been named the ECAC Hockey MLX Skates Player of the Week, the league announced Tuesday. She joins Cornell's Brianne Jenner and Amanda Mazzotta as the other weekly award winners. 

Ryabkina scored three goals in two games this weekend, helping Harvard to a win and a tie in its season opening weekend. Against archrival Yale Friday, Ryabkina netted the second and third goals for Harvard, with both scores tying the game. Ryabkina's second goal came with 14 seconds left in regulation and forced overtime. Against the Bears, Ryabkina put home a one-timer to give Harvard a 2-0 lead in the second period. 

Ryabkina and the Crimson travel to New York this weekend to take on Cornell Friday night and Colgate Saturday.
