Junior forward Amanda Kessel and freshman forward Hannah Brandt were given weekly honors by the WCHA on Wednesday. 

Kessel and Brandt each recorded four points in Minnesota's Nov. 2-3 sweep of Minnesota-Duluth. 

Kessel had a goal and three assists on the weekend. She is currently leading the team in goals. She previously earned this honor Oct. 3. 

Brandt, who currently leads Minnesota and the WCHA in points, had four assists in the sweep. She has received this honor two other times this season. 

The Gophers are off this week, but they will return to action Nov. 16 against Minnesota State-Mankato.
