Cody garners WCHA Offensive Player of the Week
MADISON, Wis. - Senior forward Erin Cody (Roseville, Minn.) was named the WCHA Offensive Player of the Week for Nov. 3 after she had the biggest weekend of her collegiate career with a hand in all seven of the Bemidji State University women’s hockey team’s goals in a conference sweep over visiting St. Cloud State on Oct. 29-30.

Cody produced a total of seven scoring points in the two victories with five goals and two assists, was a factor in both game-winning goals, fired 12 shots on goal and earned a +4 plus/minus rating.

In last Friday’s contest, Cody scored all three Bemidji State goals in the 3-2 win, recording a natural hat trick. Scoring a power-play, shorthanded, and even-strength goal in the first period, the hat trick was the first of her career. That performance also set a school record for most goals scored by a single player in one period.

Then last Saturday, Cody came back with four more points (2G, 2A) to lead BSU to a 4-0 triumph over the SCSU Huskies, including an assist on teammate Sadie Lundquist’s (So., Fwd., Cloquet, Minn.) game-winning goal in the first period. She tallied assists on the first two goals before scoring the final two.

Through eight games played this season, Cody leads BSU and ranks sixth among WCHA players in scoring with 14 points (8G, 6A).

Offensive Player of the Week: Erin Cody, Sr., Fwd., Bemidji State
Defensive Player of the Week: Shannon Reilly, Sr., Def, Ohio State
Rookie of the Week: Brittany Ammerman, Fr., Fwd., Wisconsin

Up next the Beavers will host out the defending National Champions No. 3 Minnesota Duluth. Game times are set for 7:07 p.m. on Friday and 6:07 p.m. for Saturday’s contest.
