Goaltender Reinen named WCHA rookie of the week

For the second week in a row, a Minnesota women’s hockey team newcomer has been named WCHA Rookie of the Week.

Goaltender Brenda Reinen earned the honor after saving 37 of 38 Minnesota-Duluth shots on Sunday to preserve a 1-1 tie.

Reinen made her first career start in place of sophomore Stephanie Johnson – who was stormed for seven goals in Saturday’s 7-0 loss to the Bulldogs.

Minnesota forward Kelly Stephens took home rookie of the week accolades last week, giving the Gophers back-to-back winners.


Basketball time change

Minnesota’s men’s basketball team changed the start time for its game with Nebraska on Dec. 22. The Gophers will tip-off at 7 p.m., not 1 p.m. as originally scheduled.
