Monique Lamoureux (born July 3, 1989) is an American ice hockey forward. She was named to the United States women's ice hockey team for the 2010 Winter Olympics as was her twin sister Jocelyne, where they captured a silver medal with team USA.[1] Both sisters have dual American and Canadian citizenship. [2] She was selected ninth overall by the Boston Blades in the 2014 CWHL Draft.

Playing careerEdit

Lamoureux and her twin sister were both all-state in soccer as teenagers.[3] Together, they played on the Peewee A Boys' team in 2001-02 team at twelve years old (called the Wheat Kings) and led them to the North Dakota State Hockey championship. Afterwards, they accepted a scholarship to Shattuck-St. Mary's Prep in Minnesota, the same school that Sidney Crosby played at.[3] At Shattuck-St. Mary's, the Lamoureux sisters led the school to three state titles (2005, 2006 and 2007). In her freshman year at Shattuck (2004–05), she tallied 113 points (57 goals, 56 points) in 62 games. She had 116 points (53 goals, 63 assists) in 68 games in 2005-06 to place third on the team in points and second in goals. As a junior, she ranked first on the team in 2006-07 with 135 points (85 goals, 50 assists). She led the team with 134 points (82 goals, 52 assists) as a senior in 2007-08 and helped Shattuck to a 53-3-1 record.[4]

Minnesota Golden GophersEdit

In 2008-09, Lamoureux was a freshman for the Gophers but was the team's third leading goal scorer, and a second team All-America selection.[5] By mid-February 2009, Lamoureux was leading the nation with 64 points on 32 assists and 32 goals.[6] By season's end, she ranked third in the NCAA and first among rookies with 75 points in 40 games (39 goals, 36 assists). She ranked second in the nation with five shorthanded goals and tied for third with eight game-winners. She participated in her first Frozen Four that season. In addition, she was the WCHA scoring champion, and WCHA Rookie of the Year. She was the only freshman to be named a top-10 finalist for Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award.[4]

North Dakota Fighting SiouxEdit

In 2009, Lamoureux and her sister transferred from Minnesota to North Dakota. The reason for the transfer to their home state was attributed to the fact that North Dakota hired Brian Idalski, a former coach at the USA Hockey Development Camps.[7] On January 15-16, 2011, she led the Sioux with five points in two victories over league rival Bemidji State. She earned a +7 plus/minus rating in her first weekend playing exclusively as a defenseman. In the series against Bemidji, she scored two goals and assisted on three others as North Dakota ran its unbeaten streak to five games at 4-0-1. Over 59 collegiate games, she has accumulated 107 points (54 goals, 53 assists).[8]

From February 4-5, 2011, Lamoureux-Kolls helped the No. 8 Sioux to a two-game WCHA road sweep at Ohio State. During the sweep, her two goals and four assists were all team highs. On February 4, she scored the game-winner in overtime with :09 seconds remaining. The following day, she registered two assists, including one on the game-winner. The Fighting Sioux completed their first ever sweep at OSU and clinched home ice for the league playoffs for the first time. [9]
