Senior Jenn Wakefield and sophomore Marie-Philip Poulin were each named Most Valuable Player of the Boston University women's ice hockey team for the 2011-12 season.
Wakefield was a Hockey East First-Team All-Star and the Hockey East Scoring Champion. The senior forward led the Terriers with 29 goals and 57 points and was also named a New England All-Star and the Hockey East Tournament MVP. She became the first skater in Hockey East history to score 100 career goals and the second league skater to reach the 200-point plateau.
Poulin missed 18 games in the first semester because of injury, but she made an immediate impact upon her return in January. She played in 16 games and scored at least one point in 13 of her last 14 games. She was the Hockey East Player of the Month for March and ended the season on a six-game point streak (7g, 9a). Poulin finished the season with 25 points (11g, 14a).
