BEMIDJI, Minn. -- The Bemidji State University women's hockey team returns to the Sanford Center this weekend for a conference series against University of Minnesota Duluth.

Last TIme Out
The Beavers (9-14-3, 6-12-2-1, 21 points) took a point from No. 3 North Dakota last Friday (Jan. 24) in a 3-3 tie, but fell in the series finale by a score of 2-1.

Tougas leading the Beavers
Sophomore Kaitlyn Tougas (F, Thunder Bay, Ontario) posted a goal and an assist, and was one of three BSU players to tally a pair of points in the series against North Dakota. Tougas has been the Beavers’ most consistent offensive players as she leads them in points (15) and assists (10).     

Kelly coming on
Junior Rachael Kelly (F, Rosemount, Minn.) netted a pair of goals in last weekend’s series at North Dakota. It was the second series of the season that Kelly has scored two goals with the first coming Nov. 15-16 against Minnesota State. Kelly is now second on BSU’s squad with six goals behind only Sophomore Hanna Moher’s (F, Milton, Ontario) seven.

Getting defensive
Rookie defenseman Madison Hutchinson (Manitou, Manitoba) had a pair of assists last Friday. It was the first time in her career that she has accomplished that feat. Hutchinson leads all BSU freshmen with nine points (9a) this season in 25 games. Her nine assists are the sixth-most in BSU history by a defender    

Mowing down the minutes
Freshman Goaltender Brittni Mowat (Glenboro, Manitoba) has been a staple for the Beavers as she has logged 1369:01 minutes in between the pipes this season. She ranks eighth in BSU’s history for most minutes logged in a season.

Killing it
Bemidji State’s penalty-killing unit stopped all seven of North Dakota’s power-play chances last weekend which continues a trend. BSU is ranked third in the WCHA in conference games in penalty-killing percentage (87.5%). The Beavers are only behind Minnesota and Wisconsin in that category.    

Among the nations’s elite
Bemidji State’s special teams as a whole have been very good this season as it ranks fourth in the country in combined special teams (99/177, 57.4%).  The three teams ahead of BSU in are all ranked sixth-or-higher in the national polls. (Minnesota, Cornell, Harvard)

About Minnesota Duluth
UMD’s (11-10-5, 9-8-5 WCHA) offense is very diversified as seven players have scored at least 11 points. Leading that group has been Jamie Kenyon (12g, 13a) and Jenna McParland (9g, 16a), who both have 25 points this season. Like Bemidji State, UMD has relied heavily on one goaltender for the majority of the season. Sophomore Kayla Black has posted a 10-8-5 record with a 2.04 goals against average and .930 save percentage in 25 games.

Series History
The Bulldogs lead the all-time series against BSU, holding a 57-4-2 record. All four of BSU’s wins in the series have come since 2010, including a 1-0 victory earlier this season in Duluth, Minn.

Players to Watch
One BSU player has enjoyed quite a bit of success against the Bulldogs. Ivana Bilic (D, So., Coquitlam, British Columbia) has four career goals and two of them have came against UMD.
