I would have thought Abby Wehrung would have gotten a look.

Happy that Alex won but thought Morgan Yaeger had a more consistent year.
Her (Alex) form faded in the 2nd half of the season.
Yaeger is a future Opal, hopefully she keeps developing at Oregon and gets some decent mins.

Wehrung was not a rookie this season. She played a significant role for the caps last season.
