Pointstreak statistics page

2014-15: Although Soukup only skated in four November games, she was productive in that brief time, offering a pair of goals and an assist. The second of those tallies came midway through the third period of her fourth game, at Northeastern on the 23rd of the month, and held as the winner in a 3-2 triumph.

2013-14: The 2014 ACHA National Tournament served as a coming out party for Soukup, who was named to the all-tournament squad after posting a goal and five assists in five games - including two points in each group stage contest to help Penn State advance with a table-topping 3-0-0 mark. In addition to her pair of assists in the final game of that stretch, against North Dakota State, Soukup was an instrumental part of a defensive effort that held ACHA player of the year and 47-goal scorer Kacie Johnson without a tally for only the fourth time in 24 Bison games. She ended as PSU's top point-producing blueliner for the second year in a row thanks not only to her nationals output, but also games like her two-assist effort on November 17, 2013 at Delaware, one of which was a 90-foot laser that sprung Geneva Wagoner on a breakaway.

2012-13: Soukup proved among Penn State's most impressive players in an impressive freshman class, using a lethal blend of size, strength, skating ability, puck movement and a blistering shot to put the ACHA on notice while immediately contributing to one of the nation's top defensive units. She notched her first career multi-point game with a pair of assists on November 3, 2012 at Maryland, then picked another two apples as PSU routed Navy on January 13, 2013. Her goal came at the best possible time - as the winner in a 2-1 victory at West Chester two weeks after the Navy game, a contest that essentially locked down the WIHC's bid to the ACHA National Tournament in its first year. Once there, her power play whistler with 8:40 remaining in the ACHA semifinals flew through Devon Fisk and into the Wisconsin-Stout net to force an eventually-successful overtime.
