COLUMBUS, Ohio — Lauren Spring, co-captain of the 2017-18 Buckeyes, has signed with Linköping HC Dam in Sweden where she’ll continue her hockey career, the team announced on Wednesday.

Spring just wrapped up her career at Ohio State by helping the Buckeyes make the first trips to the NCAA Tournament and Frozen Four in program history. During her four years at OSU Spring never missed a game, tallying 148 appearances, tied for second all-time.

On the ice, Spring finished her career with 44 points from 15 goals and 29 assists, but her impact on the team went considerably deeper than just scoring.

After being one of the 15 finalists for the Hockey Humanitarian Award in 2017, Spring was one of the top five finalists for the award in 2018. Spring also earned the SHAPE America Major of the Year award in 2017.

Academically Spring set the standard that the rest of the team strived to live up to, notching All-WCHA Academic Team honors all three years she was eligible, and back to back WCHA Scholar Athlete honors for her junior and senior seasons. After her senior year wrapped up, Spring was named one of the 2018 Corwin A. Fergus Memorial Award recipients, as well as the winner of the Leann Grimes-Davidge Award, awards given to student-athletes that achieved at the highest levels.
