Prior to the Thursday's game in Edmonton, several Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) Women's Hockey award winners were announced. A pair of Queens earned First All-Conference team selections and two were named to the Second All-Conference team.

Tracie Kikuchi and Jade Petrie were chosen for the ACAC Women's Hockey First All-Conference team. Kikuchi had a fantastic season in net for the Queens. The goaltender from Edmonton consistently gave her team a chance to win and she finished with a 1.42 goals against average. The Kinesiology & Sport Studies student finished second among women goaltenders with an impressive 0.945 save percentage.
